Any thoughts on next season
sounds like this virus thing could pop up next fall so what does this mean for the ski resorts.

I think they'll find a way to open up but I wouldn't be surprised if the lodges were closed or something like that
Feels like we're getting better at the distancing stuff so we have a gameplan at least to mitigate the risks and all that information is out there for people to come up with their own ways to be safe. There's areas with ski resorts that have gotten better throughout this whole thing that did what they needed to shut down way back in March whereas the areas that were a bit too late to shutdown are probably gonna struggle to get things going again. Skiing and distancing is super feasible. Locals will come back out in droves but the tourism industry as a whole took a massive hit from this and tourist crowds will probably be pretty light this year.
Ski areas seem honestly the most safe to open back up as long as they are okay with not running their revenue centers like Food and Beverage at full capacity, which is already what people are doing right now with service industry based businesses. Might just mean more overpriced grab-n-go food options in the cafeteria
lookin kinda bleeeeeaaaaak especially for resorts with enclosed people movers like gondolas and trams.
but there at a lot of rich old white people at the helm of the snow industry so I'm sure they'll find a way to be making money again by the end of the year
Idaho has been pretty chill with this, so I would be willing to bet that many idaho resorts will open
Idk about the US but western Canada is doing pretty good so I am guessing they open normal time
We already wearing masks so I think we're good
All times are Eastern (-4)
