It’s anybody’s guess what next week might bring in terms of COVID-19 regulations and restrictions, never mind what we should expect during the wintertime.
But as the calendar throttles toward September, which is truly when our minds start shifting toward the upcoming skiing and riding season, we at least have our first inkling of what the experience might look like in the midst of the pandemic.
In an open letter posted on Magic Mountain’s web site, president Geoff Hathaway outlined some of the procedures that may take place this winter at the Londonderry, Vt. ski area.
“The season will most likely start with some type of restricted capacity scenario–and stay that way–until a vaccine is widely distributed nationwide which could be sometime in February if all goes well,” Hathaway wrote. “But we are getting prepared (and we need your help), for a manageable, but fun, ski season in the midst of a pandemic.”
