Queue up if you can (socially distanced, of course). Many of the north country’s scenic mountain lifts that have been closed during the summer’s unwelcoming season of coronavirus may be opening up again, just in time to provide panoramic glimpses that highlight the region’s most vibrant season of foliage.
Dozens of chairlifts, gondolas — and even a couple of trams — are scattered across New England mountain country, giving recreation enthusiasts stricken by lengthy cabin fever plenty of convenient options to get out and appreciate the great outdoors with unique bird’s-eye perspectives.
All this enthusiasm comes with a disclaimer, of course, as not all the scenic lifts listed below are guaranteed to be up and running this fall as New England does its part in the fight against the pandemic. So, before you pack up the car, be sure to give the resorts a call or check their websites to confirm that what is and isn’t open.
