    VTKilarney your analogy using the Boyd twins is wrong. They were infected in March before we understood the virus, before there were well understood protocols, before travel restrictions etc. And of...

    This is where VT's travel rules fail. According to the CDC people at such an event are not "exposed" to Covid. 6' distance, masks, outside, limited size. This is how its supposed to be done! Yet VT...

    I went for it today. Add-on to Magic pass. Had debated for a while and Jay - even though its a haul for a day trip - clinched it. My hope (its not yet a plan) is to be in SoVT for most/all winter and...

    So peak days are 75%. So normal peak is 10,000 people, this year its 7,500. Personally I think the lodge capacity is the real constraining factor.

    Me too, for a short (15 min) drive in good weather. Unfortunately not everyone is that close. When I don't drive in boots I typically boot up in car/lot.
