    Killington's email newsletter today asked for college kids learning remotely to apply to their winter jobs. I clicked because I'm naturally curious- the employment site says 200 positions available. No seasonal visa workers this year (or at least until after the new year).

    2019-2020 59 days and holding...

    I doubt that will be common practice, but for resorts that do that, geez that's gonna' make the lines much longer Friday through Sunday & holidays. Taken literally, it would mean every single rides a quad alone!

    If asymptomatic that how do you know you have it?

    Testing.

    Same answer for the presympomatic population.

    As long as the CDC continues to maintain the six foot separation guidance, they don't know if they will have another option. Which means reservation based skiing at 50% capacity.

    If you can't maintain 6 feet then you just have to wear a mask which is already happening on ski lifts in the winter.

    Except that some recent research is indicating that gaiters are not an effective face covering. Who knows how accurate that is or not being just one study of course.

    Things will likely stay fluid and recommendations and best practices will continue to change and evolve as they learn more about this virus.

    I wouldn't be so confident that's going to be the case. My understanding is amusement parks are not seating unrelated parties together on their rides and also requiring masks. So, if you are riding a rollercoaster a stranger is not going to be seated next to you and the rows in front of you and behind you are left empty.

    Very real possibility that those in the singles line for a quad chair will not be paired up with a group of 2-3 strangers. They will be sent up solo.

    I usually ski midweek and alone but hoping they at least pair up 2 singles on a quad. That would make a big difference. Weekends could be a shitshow for sure.

    And I still for the life of me cant come up with a decision on where to settle in this winter. I want to keep things in state and epic has a great variety for nh but feel like cannon overall is a safer bet as far as making snow and restrictions. Hoping for a vaccine that works to save the second half.
