Article in the New York Times about skiing restriction during the pandemic. Author says uncrowded lifts and trails should not be an issue, but everything else is. Jackson Hole will run its Tram at 25% capacity, and Taos will cap visitors at 25% lift hourly capacity. Sounds about where it needs to be to prevent lines at Sugarbush or Killington. Also ski shops say they have seen increased interest from beginners.

Vail cut all there volunteer patrollers  when they took over, then lost a few paid patrollers and is now can't enough find certified EMT's/patrollers to work for them. I guess lowering lift capacity helped but they still need to hire more people. They also can't use Mt. Snow patrollers at Hunter. Peeks had the two patrols mix for a little but the Mt. Snow guys could not handle the steepest trails at Hunter.

I heard someone went to Stowe a few days after going to Hunter and got there pass taken away for two weeks for violating state quarantine rules. I am pretty sure Ikon is not doing this since my sister skied Sugarbush a day or two after skiing Sunday River.
