Elk Mountain changes mind

After announcing otherwise, Elk decides to be open 7 days/week. Good news, now just need them to change their mind on tree skiing.

From elkskier.com:

This just in… Elk Mountain will be open 7 days a week for the coming season. Sunday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Early price on season passes and Big & Friendly Books extended until November 25.

2020 has been a challenging year and it’s looking like the challenges will continue into 2021. At Elk Mountain, we’ve had to make some difficult decisions.

Rest assured that Elk Mountain will continue to offer a quality product on the hill and in the lodge. This means that you, too, will have to be patient and help us to comply with all National, State, and Local rules.

Please understand that as long as occupancy limits are in effect, we will have to limit the number of people in all indoor spaces. Time spent in the buildings will, as well, be limited. No tables may be reserved whether inside or outside.

All skiers and snowboarders will be required to wear an acceptable face covering at all times, unless eating or drinking (e.g. seated in a designated area) or actively engaged in skiing or snowboarding provided that the skier or snowboarder is over the age of 2 and able to medically tolerate such covering.

We encourage you to boot up at your car and to picnic. No open flames are permitted and all traffic lanes must remain open at all times.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people gather. We may from time to time have to adjust our policies to keep both you and our employees safe.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Please don’t be the reason that we lose our season.

If you have any questions, we ask that you call us at 570 679 4400 or email us at elkskiresort@gmail.com as we can better address your questions that way.

Probably tough to get employees with the previous announced schedule.

I was hoping for some powder day planning with being closed a couple days.
Now I have to hit it or miss with my work schedule.

Glad their opening though
