    I'd expect that to be part of the solution, but there's still a fair bit of effort necessary to put those commercial-sized all-weather tents up, especially if you're going to provide access to sanitation facilities. In some cases, simply finding enough level space in the vicinity of the normal base lodges could be a fair bit of challenge.

    Not to mention that those all weather tents are expensive as hell and would pretty well eat up whatever margin would be found from using them in the 1st place.

    I predict a limit on occupancy of existing infrastructure that will be ignored.
    Ooof!

    As usual, you're probably right. I'm wondering about employee locker rooms; I've never seen any that were really big enough to begin with, let alone to allow any sort of social distancing (there may be a few of the former out there, but I'd be shocked if they allowed for even three feet of separation). Given that employers (generally) have a stronger duty to make sure their employees follow safety guidelines than their customers, I'm wondering how that will shake out.

    That will be a difficult hurdle to overcome. I suppose you could bring employees in on staggered schedules have them gear up an gtfo. OTOH the required cleaning to disinfect a locker room? Damn near insurmountable.
    Ooof!

    Don't a lot of employees live together in employee housing? Seems like that would be the bigger risk.

    Things are highly speculative at best currently as far as the logistics of this shit coming late fall.
    I think theres gonna be a strapped rocky mtn security guard checking every employee coming into work for symptoms of wuflu or regular flu, they will be shot on site, and disposal of the body isn't a part of rocky mountain securitys contract. Where will boyne put the bodies? Maybe push em up w the groomer and bring back the sick halfpipe they used to half?
    The skiing is still good, the biking is getting better everyday, and someone should go schwack around and find some morels.
    There is a trophy bass staked high up in a tree at the top of leverich, solid move, who ever mounted it!

    I can't tell from the picture but if it's battery-powered, I like it even more.

    Leverich is good to go, only 2 40 ft long mud spots on the way down. Get it before it gets rutted mid summer! Corbly and felix r good, seems like Truman is still kinda muddy.
    Not the singing bass, alas.

    Anyone see that slide from the club?

    Who all saw the skier drop into BRT last night by headlamp ?

    Word started spreading in the late afternoon that (name redacted, Bunion knows him) was going to do something rad at 9:30 pm somewhere on the mountain. Box office seats on my deck, but the parking lot at MiColís condo was prime viewing too.

    Sure enough at exactly 9:30 pm a small light appeared at the top of BRT. A couple of small check turns, and then he opened it up with huge GS turns the rest of the way. I could hear clapping and cheering all throughout the Mountain Village.

    If Big Sky Resort uses the "social distancing" system in use by every hip bozeman brewery and restaurant right now that means 110% capacity at every restaurant next season.

    Is there anywhere in the area to get a legit antibody test yet? Quest supposedly has the best one, but would have to drive over to Billings I think.

    Blackmore skiing was phenomenal today, I was measuring 40-50 cm of soft stuff near the ridge line. Stability seemed pretty good until a couple dudes going for the summit triggered a pretty big slab right down the center of the SE face. Thankfully no one was caught.

    Hey, it seems like a bunch of Interwebz ski maggots were on Blackmore today! My first time, thanks to the Nests.

    Rumor (unconfirmed) that a bicyclist was mauled by a grizzly here in Big Sky today. I donít have any details.

    Heard from a 2nd person that it happened on the Fish Camp MTB Trail in Spanish Peaks.
