Sledding Hill Closure

Sledding Access at Dillon Nature Preserve is Closed to Public Access

Post Date:03/17/2020 7:19 PM

Due to social distancing recommended by Summit County Health, the sledding hill will be closed to the public until further notice.

Because we now have community spread in the High Country, it is vital that everyone in the community practice health-promoting behaviors, regardless of whether you believe you have been in contact with an individual who was symptomatic or has had a positive test.

  • Follow public health directives to limit contact with others.
  • Self-monitor for illness.
  • Stay home if you are mildly ill. Staying home saves lives.
  • Manage your symptoms at home the same way you manage other symptoms. To the extent possible, people with illness should remain at home. Isolate yourself for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, and if you continue to have fever, continue to stay at home for 72 hours following your last fever, without the use of over the counter medication.
  • If you need medical care, contact your primary care provider and schedule a visit. Let them know that you are concerned you might have COVID-19.
  • Only contact 911 for emergencies requiring immediate life-saving care and let them know if you are concerned you might have COVID-19.

The Town of Dillon will continue to provide information on COVID-19 related matters in a prompt and transparent manner. The health and welfare of our community continues to be our highest priority. The most up to date information on COVID-19 in our mountain community can be found on the Summit County Emergency Blog, at and on local government social media pages.
