Buck Hill Tent Sale Covid-19 Preparedness Plan
Objective: To comply with MN Department of Health and CDC requirements to prevent the spread of Covid-19 while providing a safe venue for the sale of public and dealer ski and snowboard equipment. The Buck Hill Tent Sale COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows the industry guidance developed by the state of Minnesota, available at the Stay Safe Minnesota website (https://staysafe.mn.gov), which is based upon Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines for COVID-19, Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MNOSHA) statutes, rules and standards, and Minnesota’s relevant and current executive orders. It addresses:
- ensuring sick workers/volunteers stay home and prompt identification and isolation of sick persons;
- social distancing – workers/volunteers must be at least six-feet apart;
- worker/volunteer hygiene and source controls, including face coverings;
- workplace building and ventilation protocol;
- workplace cleaning and disinfection protocol;
- drop-off, pick-up and delivery practices and protocol; and
- communications and training practices and protocol.
1) Workers/volunteers have been informed of and encouraged to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. The following policies and procedures are being implemented to assess workers’ health status prior to entering the workplace and for workers to report when they are sick or experiencing symptoms. Any customer, employee, vendor or volunteer who is ill for any reason, or who is exhibiting any symptoms such as fever (above 100.4 degrees F), cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, unexplained diarrhea or vomiting, or who may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the 14 days preceding attendance at the tent sale or any vendor/volunteer shift, is required to stay home and not attend the sale or their shift. All volunteers and vendors will need to sign in, complete a health questionnaire that lists the signs and symptoms of COVID-19, and, complete a temperature check prior to starting all shifts. Volunteers who feel ill for any reason prior to a shift are required to cancel their shift by calling the Tent Sale Chairman @ (952) 261-7258. Volunteers will be informed and trained on how to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of Covid-19. Any volunteer, vendor or employee who becomes ill while volunteering/working at the Buck Hill Tent Sale should immediately return to their personal vehicle or the area just outside of the Hutch facing the hill where a chair will be set up. Avoid close contact with anyone else and call 911 in the event of an emergency. If not a life-threatening emergency, please immediately call the Tent Sale Chairman at (952) 261-7258 to report your illness and request assistance. Persons injured or requiring assistance where Covid is not suspected will be treated in the Hutch. We have also implemented a policy for informing workers/volunteers/vendors if they have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 at the tent sale and requiring them to quarantine for the required amount of time. For customers, a MN Department of Health questionnaire listing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 will be prominently posted at the tent entrance with the following statement; “Continuing into the sale is an acknowledgment that you have none of the listed signs or symptoms of COVID-19”.
2) In accordance with Minnesota State requirements (Governor's Executive Order 20-81), the use of appropriate face coverings that mask the nose and mouth will be required for anyone entering the tent, soft goods area, and checkout area. This includes all volunteers, vendors, employees and customers. “Masks Required” signs will be posted at the entrance and throughout the sale. NO exceptions will be made to the mask requirement and customers will be denied entrance and volunteers/vendors sent home if they violate the mask requirement or refuse to wear a mask. More information about face covering requirements and exemptions is available on the MDH website at Facemasks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Webpage
(https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/prevention.html#masks. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, research has shown that use of face coverings can greatly reduce the risk of infection when combined with other prevention efforts such as social distancing and hand hygiene. We will have extra masks available for any volunteer, vendor, employee or customer who requests one to enter the tent sale.
3) Per Minnesota State requirements and local guidelines, social distancing of at least six feet will be implemented and maintained between workers/volunteers and customers, vendors and others in the tent sale through the following engineering and administrative controls: We will only allow up to 250 people to be in the sale at any one time; we will have dedicated volunteer positions monitoring total capacity in the tent sale at all times. We will ask that customers please only enter the tent if they are shopping for equipment for themselves or a child who is with them. We will post “Stay Six Feet From Others” signs throughout the sale. We will train our volunteers to monitor the sale, portable toilet and checkout area for any signs of crowding or violations of social distancing requirements. We will post arrows and other signs to direct customer traffic in specific directions to avoid crowding between sales racks. Except as necessary to perform their job, all volunteers, vendors and employees will be required to maintain social distancing of at least six feet from each other and we will provide training to volunteers on how to ensure they maintain social distancing from other volunteers, vendors and customers. The use of the elevators to reach the soft goods area will only be allowed for persons with limited mobility or physical disability.
Lines for checkout, portable toilets and tent entrance will have markings to provide for adequate social distancing of at least six feet. The check-out area will be larger this year to allow for customer spacing of at least six feet and we will post markings to direct customers to maintain the appropriate distance from each other and our volunteer cashiers. An early paid entrance plan has been enacted to reduce entrance lines. When the tent reaches capacity, an app based line management system will be used to allow customers to return to their cars to wait. The chosen system will allow customer contact info to be gathered quickly to prevent a line from forming.
4) The maximum amount of fresh air is being brought into the tent sale. We will keep large portions of our tent side walls open to allow maximum ventilation. We will open entrance and exit doors to the Ski School and Event Center for ventilation.
5) Hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol content will be provided throughout the tent and its use will be requested after handling any items and before entering the tent sale. Signs will be posted to encourage hand sanitizing and washing. Disposable gloves will be provided for volunteers or employees who would like to use them. Volunteers will be instructed to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water frequently throughout the day, but especially at the beginning and end of their shift, prior to any mealtimes and after using the restroom. Volunteers will be instructed to cover their mouth and nose with their sleeve or a tissue when coughing or sneezing, and to avoid touching their face, particularly their mouth, nose and eyes, with their hands.
6) Our item check in/checkout processes for vendors and the public have been switched to an electronic tagging system that minimizes product handling and eliminates manual tag removal. Clear plastic barriers will be in place between customers and cashiers. The use of credit cards instead of cash will be required at all checkout stands except for one dedicated to cash.
7) Regular practices of cleaning and disinfecting will be implemented. Cleaning and sanitizing will occur throughout the sale. A dedicated volunteer position has been created to sanitize high touch, high traffic areas and ensure Porta-Potties are clean and stocked with sanitizer. Cleaning and sanitizing products will be provided in the boot and soft goods areas for sanitizing products that are tried on but not purchased. Sales personnel are tasked with using these sanitizing products prior to returning an item to the racks. Appropriate and effective cleaning and disinfecting supplies have been purchased and are available for use in accordance with product labels, safety data sheets and manufacturer specifications, and are being used with required personal protective equipment for the product. Cleaning products will come from List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS- CoV-2 (www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2).
8) This COVID-19 Preparedness Plan was communicated electronically to all volunteers on September 15, 2020. Instructions will be communicated to all volunteers, vendors, employees and others about protections and protocols, including: 1) social distancing protocols and practices; 2) drop-off, pick-up, delivery and general in-tent sale shopping; 3) practices for hygiene and respiratory etiquette; and 4) requirements regarding the use of face-coverings and/or face-shields by workers. Volunteers and vendors will also be advised not to enter the tent sale area if they are experiencing symptoms or have contracted COVID-19. This Covid-19 preparedness plan will be posted and readily accessible at the sale, and disseminated electronically to all vendors, employees and others. It will also be posted on our Tent Sale website. The Tent Sale Chairman will ensure volunteers, vendors and employees are familiar with the plan and offer a specific training platform to inform all volunteers about the plan and answer any questions. All volunteers will be directed to contact the Tent Sale Chairman at (952) 261-7258 with any questions or concerns about the tent sale COVID-19 plan or any other concerns related to COVID-19 or the requirements in this plan.

Yes. Equipment must meet minimum acceptable standards set by Buck Hill Ski & Snowboard Tent Sale. In short, very old skis will not sell and are not likely to have the bindings indemnified. Manufacturers will not stand behind indemnified bindings and ski shops will probably refuse to work on them. There is no longer an official indemnified list but you can find a partial listing at skibum.net for 2017-18. The 2016-17 list is also available here. Equipment found to be damaged or in bad repair may be removed from the sale. Clothing must be clean and in good condition.
Equipment drop off this year is intended to minimize person-to-person contact, hence we can not offer in-person pricing guidance. HERE IS A GENERAL PRICING GUIDE.
