My thought is if VT is unwilling to allow hotels to open for normal business until 6/1 and that is an activity that easily allows for social distancing, there's no chance they allow activities such as skiing which will promote large gatherings of people. I don't see the typical spring skiing crowd "behaving" at K and not having group tailgate parties.
Fully agree with this.
The marketing opportunity and making pass holders happy would be well worth it.
Except if they had a lottery system, inevitably some (or perhaps even many) passholders wouldn't even be able to take advantage if they had to limit access and would be pissed off. If they were to open, demand would far outpace supply. Never-mind the public reaction if they did end up having a large gathering because people don't follow the rules and someone, somehow brought the virus into the area.
