I was feeling sick this year so I got tested. Both the rapid and the more accurate lab test that takes 2 days. Both came out negative. In my opinion( and just mine) if you get sick get tested. I go to work everyday and I would not want to come it and get other people sick. So for me getting a result before going back was SOP. Actually before I went back to my regular mtb with friends I waited for the results. It's the kind of a courtesy that should be extended.

FUD corrections:

1) Everybody who isn't a child who says, "I've never had the flu" has actually had the flu.
2) It is not possible to get the flu from the flu shot.
3) An OTC at-home COVID19 antibody test was approved last month = $129

I know two folks who got Guillain-Barré syndrome from the flu shot and won’t take the vaccine because of that experience. Very un-likely

Well if I had the flu I don't remember it. Had pneumonia once and once had something no one knows what it was. Our entire ski group got sick at Whistler. I think that was something in the air ducts in the hotel..worst thing I ever had..heard they had a problem with that.

My father may not have had the flu but always got sick as shit shortly after his flu shot.

Circling back to the original topic of this thread.... now that the effectiveness of the vaccines seem to be steering the world back towards "normal", does anyone thing any of the covid related changes to ski resorts will actually be permanent?

The only one i can think of is ticket kiosks maybe, and those were likely making their way in regardless of covid.

Anything else?

Pretty sure Gunstock will be limiting day ticket sales to keep crowds down a bit. It was a better experience this year for pass holders as far as that goes.

I hope more outdoor seating ,more food trucks, more open windows on building and shuttle buses. Not easy, but more space in lodges would be good. I hope added outdoor seating could reduce crowding in lodges.
