COVID Testing Options:

Face Coverings:

  • STARS is currently operating as a mask optional facility.
  • Masks are optional for all programming, but we will follow the lead of participants’ comfort levels. Our staff will gladly wear a mask when requested on individual lessons.

Strict Hygiene Standards: We have doubled down on sanitation and cleaning. Hand sanitizer is available in all buildings and all programs.

Food & Beverage: We have implemented sanitizing procedures to ensure we can continue providing excellent food while maintaining safety. We have eliminated buffets and will be providing table service to each individual.


While our organization is taking extraordinary steps to mitigate the risk of COVID-19, we want to be transparent that we are a small staff, and we are subject to the requirements mandated by Routt County and the State of Colorado public health with respect to staff isolation and quarantine with any possible COVID-19 exposure.

It is our sincere hope that our mitigation steps and operating procedures provide you with safe and fun programming experiences, but because we are a small staff, any isolation or quarantine situation may affect STARS’ ability to hold programming or teach lessons which may result in cancellation of your reservation.

We are sharing this information with you now to avoid and eliminate any surprises or disappointments prior to your departure for your trip. We are willing to cancel your reservation and refund your payments should you reconsider your participation with STARS.

We will continue to work closely with Routt County, the State of Colorado, and our community partners to achieve successful operations for our participants and their families.

Please note that all policies and guidelines are subject to change.
