I don't see the typical spring skiing crowd "behaving" at K and not having group tailgate parties.
    Fully agree with this.

    Except if they had a lottery system, inevitably some (or perhaps even many) passholders wouldn't even be able to take advantage if they had to limit access and would be pissed off. If they were to open, demand would far outpace supply. Never-mind the public reaction if they did end up having a large gathering because people don't follow the rules and someone, somehow brought the virus into the area.

    Especially when you consider that for K right now, passholders can be both the K specific passholders, as well as IKON passholders who may still have some of their K days left.

    Trying to sort through that mess alone, let alone with the potential volume of people it involves who have one or the other or even both passes, has way more potential for negatives than positives

    Just wait a few days. The Supreme Court and US Attorney General could waive away any restrictions. Businesses could still choose to be restrictive but not forced by the states.

    What leads you to believe this?

    I agree with him.

    I have to imagine we're getting pretty close to an emergency ruling SCOTUS case here. I'm kind of shocked we haven't already. This is completely unprecedented, which is precisely SCOTUS' territory. Now, I get NYC & northern NJ locking down, but we have places in America where COVID19 frankly isnt even that big of a deal "locking down" & creating major economic hardship, not to mention restrictions on freedoms, even of movement. Paging SCOTUS, you're gonna' be steppin' up to the plate soon.

    And now the WHO is begrudgingly admitting that Sweden may have got this right.
