    Intra-country not inter. That's literally the opposite.

    COVID concerns in the Northeast

    Right, so it would be different from every other vaccine in history....because covid. Moderna has specifically said their vaccine prevents you from carrying/spreading the virus (just like every other vaccine). Pfizer has not said because they haven't studied it properly because there were other...

    If conditions in the Catskills were good today I don't want to ski anymore.

    You can skip the obsessive hand washing too, btw. It's good for many other illnesses but has little effect on an a respiratory virus. Unless you are swabbing your lungs with your dirty fingers.

    Singles Line

    People party with masks on outdoors on chairlifts? Not sure how you made it out of your cave if you're worried about catching Covid on a chairlift.

    Does it always piss hot rain right before or on Christmas in eastern ski country or does if just seem that way?

    Can Okemo overcome 30inches+to open more then 1 lift???

    Simply not true. 40" in under 24 hours would cripple Alta. Full interlodge, illegal to go outside, road and mountain closed. 40" over two or three days is a totally different story.

    Can Okemo overcome 30inches+to open more then 1 lift???

    Nobody was forecasting Ludlow to get 40" of snow in under 24 hours (likely close to, if not a new state record). At the end the short range models starting picking up on a heavy band of snow that was supposed to be farther south. So moving staff closer to the mountain just wasn't a thought and...

    Jackson Gore was spinning in the afternoon. they'll be fine this weekend. If a western mountain received 40" overnight they would have an equally hard time opening.
