    I know this year is a whole new ball game but when I ski at K in May I wouldn’t say most of the people are from NYC or the metro area. Mass, CT, VT and NH are the most prevalent license plates I see. NY and NJ are sprinkled in.

Staff should be there for the mountain biking and golf operations which start up mid-May traditionally.

    And as I've said before the skiers will come out in DROVES and the atmosphere will be epic next time they open for skiing (whether that be May or October).
    I wouldn't be counting on it this year. Wouldn't surprise me to see no summer activity until mid-summer at the earliest.

    Yeah, I don't see summer operations going until 7/4. Which won't have much impact on the bottom line of the resorts so it's a no brainer to delay from their perspective

    I'm not overly optimistic, but hoping there is a chance I get to use my senior season pass to ski Snowbird again in the next couple of months.

    They've consistently left a small amount of wiggle room in their virus announcements for the possibility of reopening. On March 21 they said, "extend(ing) the suspension of our operations indefinitely. We are closed for now and, while we cannot underestimate the extreme fluidity of our current situation, our goal is to reopen when we can." On March 13 as many resorts were announcing impending closures they said, "we plan to maintain operations through the spring." They closed two days later during the weekend wave when most other North American resorts closed too.

    Today 3/25 the Utah Governor issued his plan for the health and economic recovery of the state. He did NOT issue a shelter in place plan like other states or cities have done. But neither is he on the "back by Easter" idea Trump floated the other day.

    We shall see. Stay safe all.

    I still don't think people quite grasp the seriousness of this. And maybe it will take someone they know personally falling victim to this before they truly understand. Sadly I lost a 45 y/o co-worker tonight. Hard to even think about skiing now...

    Sorry to hear that.

    Did they have existing health issues that you knew of?

    Sad situation all around with this.

    Yesterday at the River, they were putting the gondolas back on the chondi. The Spruce chairs are wrapped in plastic to protect from UV, the pads are off the Whitecap chairs and the Barker chair. That, or the Locke mountain triple, is what they use for the last bits of skiing, so it's just not happening this season at the River. Looking for October or November.
    lovin life,

    Bob
