I mean, I guess he might work for a pharma giant in something like Accounts Receivable where he has no interaction with the medical side, but it was a very strange comment. That's why. Put another way, we dont stockpile drugs for a zombie apocalypse.

    Yesterday my pizza guy (first name basis, it's New Jersey) said his business is down about 20% to 25% this week. I imagine it will only get worse.

    Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands in Michigan will be ending the winter season after the ski day on Sunday. All resort services and lodgings will close Monday, all uests must check out and leave by 11am then. No idea whether this will be pushed East and West within their resorts, no indication of such as of now by Loon/SR/SL.

    Welp FML for not skiing today. Maybe I'll try and hit a local bump tomorrow or hit Gore even though it will be crusty just to close out the season....

    So much for Snowbird and Alta in early April....
    Alta/Snowbird still open....for now

    Edit: Alta closed effective immediately

    Cynical money grab posing as virtue on the part of Vail and Alterra. I know you oh-so-easy-manipulated apologist will object. Nothing to say but that you are fools.

    I kind of think he's right though.

    Close the cafeterias and bars. Shut-down gondis (which most resorts dont have).
    Run ski ops as normal; it's an outdoor activity.

    I'll be doing a lot more hiking & trout fishing over the next few months than I normally do. Not a high-risk COVID19 environment.

    My bad. Totally missed the altruistic intent of your protest to Edd only mentioning the financial disruption. I was taken back because Edd talking money is typically your language.

    Trust when I say Edd indeed does work for a major international pharma company (not in AR) and does occasionally, in fact care about other people enough to ponder that the drugs he helps make could help them.
