|During the day on Friday, the Vermont ski industry was asking how many people they could load on a Gondola. Not us!|
By the end of the day on Saturday, Vail and Alterra announced they were closing all their resorts including their Vermont holdings.
By the end of the day on Sunday, all Vermont resorts except Smuggs, announced they were closing, and I sent you a letter describing our action to remain open.
Last night, the Governor announced he is closing all Vermont schools, and the CDC has reduced gatherings to 50 from 250.
A significant majority of people who communicated with me supported our decision to stay open. However, it is with sadness that I have reached the conclusion Smuggs must acknowledge the best advice of Health authorities concerning schools and apply the advice to mountain operations effective this Tuesday evening.
I am very grateful for the support of Smuggs skiers and riders, and I am sure better days are coming!
