    They are reporting influenza as a range at this time 24,000 to 60,000 - not sure why and there isn’t an explanation. We seem to average around 50,000 +/- a few thousand.

    Flu cases should be way down this season due to COVID precautions.

    Heck even in the nursing home where my mother is (many are end of life and non functioning in any way) 5 died of COVID but were near death to begin with. Not trying to sound cold but even influenza might have created the same result or months late natural causes.

    This is one example and hypothetical. The death count from a single nursing home in Millinocket due to a worker having covid is now 7 within a couple weeks. 7 people would have not have died from influenza or other causes in the same home in one week. Now that person has to live with that because they went 'Murica at an illegal gathering.

    It all goes back to needing to protect the vulnerable population and not writing them off just because they are old or have a condition. I

    That should have happened from the beginning and could have happened without the large scale blanket statewide lockdowns. Unfortunately it didn't, and some states even made the situation worse by forcing covid positive patients back on the nursing homes

Also not uncommon to see people tailgating during lunch or apres especially at A Basin. On difference here is it rarely gets below zero and not many days are even in single digits.

    Those super cold days will be interesting for sure for many not used to booting up at their cars. This is where snow boarders have the advantage!

    Friends that visited us in the past from NH hated booting up in the parking lot! Looks like they will need to get used to it!

    This also goes back to ski teams - they leave shit everywhere and are mass groups of lodge loungers. That will be a change for sure!

    Gonna be a tough season for those of us with little ones that's for sure. But what can you do. I'll be happy to be skiing.

    This is directly for anyone who is still a member of the Connecticut Ski Council...

    Also of note for people who usually don't buy a pass and deal-hop from mountain-to-mountain...

    The Connecticut Ski Council reports that so far only Killington/Pico has agreed to participate in the Bulk Ticket/Vouchers program this season. They will only offer a weekday/non-holiday, single-use ticket which is non-refundable.
    The CSC is still finalizing the Council Awareness Days program. All participating mountains and dates will be listed on the CSC website skiclub.com soon. So far Killington/Pico, Burke, Jay Peak and Sugarbush have agreed to participate.
    I'm surprised either program is running. Awareness Days are date-specific but the Vouchers are not date specific. So my final hypothesis is that Killington is thinking they will have excess capacity midweek.
    2019-2020 59 days and holding...
    Thunder Ridge: 12/7, 12/8, 12/21, 12/26, 12/27, 12/28, 12/29, 12/31, 1/4, 1/5, 1/11, 1/17, 1/18, 1/19, 1/26, 2/1, 2/2, 2/8, 2/9, 2/15, 2/16, 2/20, 2/21, 2/22, 2/23, 3/7, 3/8
