COVID INFORMATION

Statement from the National Ability Center addressing masks and COVID-19 protocols for the 2021 Summit Challenge event on August 28th, 2021.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), current data suggests the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in outdoor settings is minimal. In general, fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask outdoors. Fully vaccinated people are encouraged to wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised.

Due to the nature of the event being mostly outdoors, we recommend that unvaccinated and immunocompromised individuals wear masks at Summit Challenge, but masks will not be required when outside for participants, staff, volunteers, or vendor.  All staff and volunteers serving food and/or beverages are required to wear masks and gloves.

Masks will be required for ALL Individuals when entering a National Ability Center building. Masks will be available at all National Ability Center building entrances. We will also have masks available at registration/check in and at the National Ability Center Outreach tent in the vendor village. Please remember to bring a mask with you when attending the event

We also request that anyone with Covid-19 symptoms do not attend, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.

We look forward to seeing you at the event and appreciate you being respectful of others and helping keep our vulnerable community safe!

PARKING & LODGING

PARKING INFORMATION

There is plenty of parking surrounding the NAC for all riders and spectators. We do suggest carpooling as the closer lots fill up quickly. Walking paths connect lots that are further from the starting line. Limited parking will be permitted in the lots below the National Ability Center, at Quinn’s Junction, and in the dirt lot across from the soccer fields. Parking attendants will be present to facilitate parking the day of the event. There is NO event parking allowed at the Ice Arena or the Dog Park lots.

Parking at National Ability Center Ranch (1000 Ability Way Park City, UT 84060) is reserved for those that require ADA parking. Please follow adaptive parking signs and parking attendants to direct you to the correct parking lot. 

Accessible parking will be available at the NAC main lot (located in front of the Admin Building and Lodge). A volunteer at the gravel lot will allow people with ADA needs through to park up the back entrance. No parking pass will be required this year.

Please see map below for all other parking locations. Please note that packet pickup will be at the Athletic fields, not at the NAC starting line.
