    Condolences, your story will sadly be repeated often in the next several months. God help us all. Skiing seems so trivial at this point, embarrassingly so.

    Somewhat. He did have some issues with reduced lung capacity due to a problem in the past.

    We are the only ones really thinking about skiing. It is spring in the flatlands so it is not on everyone's mind. Golf was and then the courses got shut down in MA yesterday.

    And here in Maine, they are trying to get them open to give some activity to people where distance is a natural result of the activity.

    I will be happy to have the 2021-2022 season start off without issue at this point. We are in uncharted territory.

    Killington may be able to open for a bit, but also remember there are sections of Superstar that are well under the typical spring depth. They had planned to make snow for ~48 more hours.

    .. realistically .. few care now whether Superstar has any skiable snow .. or if it reopens for Easter. At this point, many would simply hope for the possibility that skiing returns as an option next year.
    One step .. one day at a time.

    Maybe if they either say walking only or 1 person per cart.

    Either way, I'd be surprised if they allow the courses to stay open for long. They closed Acadia National park today. If there's concern about people hiking in a park, I'd imagine there will be concern about people congregating on a golf course. Though perhaps the park closure is to discourage people from Mass traveling to Maine and spreading the disease.

    This is the best case scenario, but I’m guessing it’s realistic.
