In accordance with WCBR’s duty to provide and maintain an environment that is free of known hazards, we strongly encourage attendees to achieve full vaccination to minimize the risk of infectious disease at our conference.

COVID Update from Aspen & Snowmass Tourism Center: Summer is in full swing in the Roaring Fork Valley. The bike trails are open, the lifts are spinning, the fish are biting, and we’ve fired up the grills on our mountains for lunch with a view. As we soak up the summer, we’ve seen continued improvement across all Covid metrics and things are mostly back to pre-pandemic operations. Capacity and social distancing rules have mostly been eliminated, but individuals are still required to follow rules implemented at a federal, state, and local level where applicable. In Aspen and Pitkin County, mask restrictions were lifted in all indoor and outdoor public settings in early June. Festivals and sporting events are back on, and on-mountain activities are in full swing on Snowmass and Aspen Mountain. We ask that all guests keep themselves updated on rules surrounding specific events and venues.

The WCBR Executive Office will create and distribute a Code of Conduct regarding requirements and restrictions for attendees of the 2022 WCBR in Snowmass. These specific protocols will be posted here on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.
