What’s new, you ask?
More like what exactly won’t be new about skiing and riding this winter?
While COVID-19 has thrown a host of new regulations into the fabric of the 2020-21 season, it sure beats the alternative that we experienced last March. The good news is that there will be skiing and riding. How long it lasts might be based on how well everyone falls in line with the requirements in place.
There will be some universal headaches, such as the expectation that families boot up at their cars, the requirement to wear masks, social distancing on the chairlifts, riding gondolas with the windows open, and the overall inability to treat this skiing and riding season like any ever before. It’s going to take preliminary and mandatory commitment in order to visit your favorite ski resort in Vermont.
