Is it a possibility that come fall those things wouldn't be allowed anyway? Sure.
    Well said and agree that things could end up cancelled eventually regardless. Lack of precision happens, though. I'm certainly not immune. NBD.

    I expect no fans to start for sure.

    That said, this article is obviously a far cry from evidence that "major sporting events will not allow spectators until then (2021) either".

    I'm not trying to be ticky tack, but I was waiting to get into the grocery store and I thought there was actual breaking news being relayed by dblskifanatic's post. This is clearly not the case.

    That's if the players even agree to the proposal of being isolated from their families for months to begin with. More and more are coming out against it

    Not really a ski resort thing but how many of you have noticed an up tick in traffic this weekend? I think people are tired of staying home! I guess if I noticed it I was one of the culprits.

    Today was a beautiful day. We took advantage and drove to a local LI beach and there was way more traffic, especially down on Ocean Parkway. Lots of tourists too - people stopped on side of road and walking up dunes to see the water (both not allowed). We went to a Gilgo and wore masks in the parking lot and walking through the tunnel to the beach, but not on the beach as social distancing was easy.

    The time of year and especially the weather has been very favorable for staying home. That first day in the mid 80s look out!

    So.....what are we thinking?

    places open with limits on ticket sales? Gondi and chairlift rides with family only, lodge limitations with tables spaced far apart?

    Or is it time to buy a good back country set up?

    That's what I'm thinking. I doubt ticket capping will be a tremendous issue on all but the busiest of days. For whatever reason most states are fixated on a "50%" capacity figure. For the big ski resorts with 8,000-12,000ccc they're running at over 50% capacity only a couple dozen weekend days a year. Monday-Friday it's a complete non-issue.

    Some great detail I found to back-up my above post. I dug through Mount Snow's old master plan files from the 2005-2015 era. Everything you could ever need to know about Mount Snow and/or ski resort master planning is burried on the Act 250 database, btw.

    As of 2011 Mount Snow had exactly 4,004 parking spaces.

    So on an average Saturday they're just over the 50% mark. Figure 12 Saturday's Christmas-March they'll technically hit 50% on 8 or 9 out of 12 of them. It's a function of these major resorts having so much flex capacity to maximize those 12,000 skier visit days that if they ran at their true maximum capacity they would be totally overrun. And our idea of a "busy Saturday" is really nowhere near that maximum.
