Stellar Brew Mammoth Small Businesses

As much as we hate to admit it, you can’t spend all your time outside. Fortunately, the communities that surround most ski mountains are some of the best in the world and more than make up for any time where outdoor activities are not an option.

One of the best things about ski towns is that they’re often made up of small businesses that represent the best of the community. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed many Mammoth small businesses to close their doors or drastically change the way they operate. To help show how much we love the small businesses that make up our favorite ski town of Mammoth Lakes, the Mammoth Bound team has listed a few ways you can support them on your next visit to Mammoth Lakes or any ski town. Check it out below and share this post to spread the love for small businesses all over the country!

Adapt with the Business

Small businesses all over the world have had to adapt how they operate based on local and state guidance’s designed to stop the spread of COVID-19, and you should adapt with them. In most cases, that means using things like curbside pickup or a digital menu on your phone.

While those things may seem like roadblocks, there are also new opportunities to support your favorite small businesses. For example, a restaurant may be selling boxes of their produce so you can make your favorite dish of theirs at home or work it into other dishes. They may also be offering classes online so you can learn the process behind creating your favorite recipe or cocktail.

No matter what the Mammoth small businesses does, adapt with them so they can stay open and a part of the community!

Follow COVID Safety Guidelines

Although you can support small businesses in many different ways, the best thing for small businesses is for the COVID-19 pandemic to end. For that reason, we all have to follow local and state COVID guidelines that protect staff and visitors as well as prevent the spread of the virus. After all, small businesses in ski towns depend on visitors to survive more than anyone else, and if there is a surge in COVID-19 cases then travel could be suspended.

In many cases, small businesses are required by law to follow local and state COVID guidelines, so it’s important that you follow all posted guidelines in order to prevent the spread as well as keep their doors open. You may also find COVID guidelines and procedures that a small business asks its customers to follow. Whether that means a capacity limit or requiring social distancing, these guidelines are in place so that the business can protect its staff and customers.

Even if they’re inconvenient in the moment, these guidelines are there to protect people and keep the doors open so please follow them!

Give the Mammoth Small Businesses a Social Media Shout Out

Small businesses need all the support they can get right now, so if you have a great experience at one you should let everyone know about it online.

It’s never been easier to let the world know how great the small businesses that make up a community are, and reviews and posts online will not only share their products but will also build their reputation now and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re all adjusting to the new normal created by COVID-19, help small businesses survive and thrive by following these tips and supporting them in any way you can!
