(KGW / NBC News) If you're thinking of hitting the slopes this season, expect a few changes.

COVID-19 safety measures are being put in place to ensure staff and skiers stay safe this season at many resorts.

"The main difference between this season than all other seasons will be that everybody at Meadows will have a face mask or covering on," says Dave Tragethon of Oregon's Mt. Hood Meadows.

He says you should also plan on taking your vehicle to the lodge for the day. 

"Put your boots on in your vehicle, come on up. If you're going to have lunch, maybe grab and go from our restaurant or bring your own picnic and go back to your car and eat there." 

Tragethon says guests should stay out of the lodges as much as possible. People coming to Mt. Hood Meadows should already have a reservation for rental equipment, lessons or have their season pass or a ticket good for that day.

That's how the resort will manage access to the mountain. 

"We anticipate how many passholders we're going to have come out, and then we only make available a certain number of lift tickets for each day," he explains.
