    If there are less tables, (even with the lodges at 50%), there will be more room to go in and warm up. Also, less people will be out riding in general on these days anyway.

    A) Not on K property
    B) Event had prolonged exposure, indoors, F&B consumed, no PPO, etc. The gondola while arguably is "indoors" has a near if not 100% air exchange each time the doors are opened....

    The big problem with Loon is its popularity due to proximity to 93. I've had quite a few good days there when it wasn't busy.
