It is more important than ever to travel responsibly this Fall. To help you we have created several responsible travel resources
- Visit our Responsible Travel Webpage which has information about how to travel, recreate and experience the mountains responsibly.
- Read our 3 part blog series on Responsible Travel
- We have created a "Travelling to Golden during COVID-19" document to help you plan ahead, CLICK HERE to view or download it.
While in Golden we ask that everyone abide by individual COVID-19 protocols that are visible prior to entering each business. Each business's protocols should include information about masks, hand sanitization, and maximum occupancy. Bringing your own personal protective equipment such as masks and hand sanitiser is very important. Finally, PLANNING AHEAD whenever possible is more important than ever. This includes accommodations, dinner reservations and all activities.
