    It's not that your idea doesn't make sense, I just dont think it would make a sufficient enough positive difference given how small & confined a space it is. We're talking about nanometer-sized particles here. And given it's not like the CDC is going to run a "COVID19 gondola study", there's no way we will know. But from what I've learned of proven known indoor spreading incidents globally, there is absolutely no way in hell you will catch me in a gondola at any ski resort until 3 weeks after I've been injected with a vaccine.
    I agree that the window sizing is probably not enough to prevent spread among people riding up together. I was more thinking that with the windows and doors being open on the return down, it would provide enough air circulation to basically clear out each gondola. It shall be interesting to see how it all goes down this season.

    Either way, Loon is opening their tight box to summer riders early July. A 4 pax gondola, no thanks.

    My prediction is that the earn your turns market is going to boom. This will help the guide industry..hell..most people don't even know you can rent guides for east coast skiing..they all think its a western and European thing. I'm up for it..have to get a little better in the trees though.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Yep, I think you may be correct. Just picked up a copy of "Best Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast - 50 Classic Ski Tours". Most of it is centered around New Hampshire but covers a lot in VT, NY and MA too. Interesting read that gives detailed directions and GPS locations. A lot of s--t I didn't even know existed and much of it is pretty accessible. I've never used uphill skins before but I guess we all have to start somewhere...Just hedging against the worst case scenario that I am praying we avoid.

    Nah, more like lots more Jerry jerk offs with no business stepping into the BC will die and collect innocent regulars who know. Kickin cornices for the gram and dropping lines with peeps below. Standard weekend in LCC. Multiply that this winter 5x with every dentist dad and his $4000 touring set up that saw a avy report once and now says he’s an expert
