Drone Policy

Out of safety concerns for guests, members, employees and resort property, as well as concerns for individual privacy, Wisp Resort prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems or drones by the general public – including recreational users and hobbyists – without the prior written authorization from the Resort. This prohibition includes drones used for filming, or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating above or within 100 ft of Resort boundaries. This prohibition on drone operations or use extends to any drone launched or operated from Resort property, as well as drones launched from private property outside of the Resort boundaries. Please contact Tom Sheaffer at [email protected] if you have any questions or if you seek prior authorization to operate any aerial drones. Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by FAA rules and regulations, local law enforcement, as well as those policies separately established by this Resort, which may include certification, training, insurance coverage indemnification requirements and waivers or releases of liability. Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of your skiing or snowboarding privileges, or the revocation of your season pass, as well as confiscation of any drone equipment, and may subject violators to any damages, including, but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries or property damage, as well as regulatory fines and legal fees.
