Covid 19 Procedures & Protocols

The smokehouse has been redesigned for the winter 2020 ski season to accommodate all BC health regulations. The Smokehouse has changed to a reservation only system and has implemented online reservations on the web site, communal tables have been removed and booths have been installed along with tables with a maximum of 6 people. Tables are spaced 6ft apart or are shielded with barriers. In the event of reservations being in excess of 6 people, separate tables will be provided up to a maximum of 6, children must be supervised and can not be placed on a separate table, there must be parental supervision on the table as the tables can not interact.

Online ordering and payment have been introduced through our web site for guests who would prefer to collect and eat their own meal. Our air makeup system circulates and changes the air in the Smokehouse in approximately 3 minutes and replaces it with fresh heated air.

These changes have been implemented to protect the health and safety of our guests and staff.
