COVID-19 EVENTS FAQ
What To Expect FAQ
The health, safety, and well-being of our staff, guests, and community is our top priority. Because of this, we have extensively revised our summer operating plans for event programming. Experiences will look different and all competitors and spectators need to be aware of new policies and procedures in place to maintain safety and physical distancing guidelines. Personal responsibility is required to successfully maintain summer programming. We are so excited to share summer with you – come join us!
All registration will be done digitally, with strictly no day of registration, no exceptions.
In keeping with Phase 2 guidelines set forth for the State of Oregon, the number of competitors and spectators will be strictly capped to prevent potential overcrowding and ensure we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Waivers will be completed online when you register for the race. Any minor must have a parent/legal guardian present at the time of registration to complete the process.
You may notice that we are requesting more details than usual when completing the registration process for a bike race at Mt. Bachelor. This is to ensure that we comply with the State of Oregon’s contact tracing mandate. Please ensure that all fields are completely and accurately filled out, and for minors, that a parent/legal guardian completes the process.
Racer packet pickup along with swag items that have been prepackaged, will be available from the designated “Registration” desk outside of the Mountain Gateway Office, the morning or afternoon of the event. Please observe all directional signage, stay single file, physically distanced, and wear a mask when interacting with employees during this collection process. Please leave ample time to collect items, prior to the race start time.
There will be signage throughout the programming. Please ensure you observe and adhere.
All experiential employees will wear masks at all times, and gloves when interacting with guests. (Ie. for rider packet pick-up, when handling materials/equipment etc).
All event competitors are required to wear face coverings (yes, even underneath a full-face helmet) when entering the Lift-line, loading and unloading the lift, and during racer packet pick-up.
Bike races will take measures to ensure a limited number of riders are present at the top of the course waiting to drop by using a first come, first serve basis rather than a structured numerical start order.
The start area will be specifically designed to ensure no congregating ensuring 6 feet between riders as they start the race.
Wherever possible, race runs/courses have been designed to ensure physical distancing, with the rider in the back, owning track. If an opportunity presents itself, whereby racers can safely pass another racer, social distancing must be observed. Failure to do so, could result in disqualification.
Upon completion of your race, please do not congregate in the finish area. Either move to the zoned spectator area, if capacity allows, or continue on to the West Village Base area.
There will be Physical Distancing liaisons present at the top and bottom of the race run, as well as in any food and beverage lounges or award ceremonies. Please, no High Fives, fist bumps, etc… a thumbs-up will do just fine! When on a bike, please keep 2.5 feet from the bike in front. When not, please ensure you are keeping 6 feet from other competitors and spectators.
Provided there is room to adhere to physical distancing guidelines and spectators are able to keep 6 feet between one another, guests are permitted to ‘spectate’ the event. Under no circumstance are guests to gather in groups at the entrance or exit of the race ‘run’. If there is an opportunity to spectate but not enough space to safely do so, spectating will be allowed in a limited capacity and “zoned” to prevent congregating between other guests.
Awards will take place outside, with podiums placed 6 feet apart. Competitors and spectators, during awards, will be required to remain in designated, appropriately spaced zones, 6 feet apart, no greater than 10 family members/ “came together” per zone with strictly no moving between and face coverings are strongly recommended. All podium placers must wear a face covering when receiving prizing.
There will be designated restrooms for competitors and spectators, cleaned in accordance with phase 2 guidelines, every hour, during the duration of the programming. Please follow appropriate physical distancing guidelines and observe signage when using these facilities.
As a registered racer, you will be e-mailed event information to minimize contact. Spectators should visit www.mtbachelor.com/events-caledar, and select the programming you are interested in joining us for.
