    This has been covered in a couple of threads numerous times. FFS just go to their website and read the simple answer.

    AFAIK nobody here has access to any more information about the pass than anyone else here. Some people may have better reading comprehension. Many are like my wife--"Why is my computer doing this?" I have no idea, so I google it, find the answer and fix it. Why couldn't she google it? 37 years of marriage and I have no fucking idea.

    Ah, ok, thanks. That's better. Still not buying in.

    I had an interesting conversation with an extended family member who works in management for Winter Park about their Covid plans. The long and short is that Winter Park and Alterra's approach to the upcoming season and Covid is to basically change as little as possible from prior seasons unless the State or County forces them to. Some specifics:
    -They believe limiting day lift ticket sales will be enough to control crowds and want to avoid a reservation system (lift access or parking) or capacity limits unless the State or County requires it.
    -They do not plan to alter lift loading (keep parties separated) and plan to load full chairs unless the County or State requires it (with the exception of possibly the gondola). They believe their science shows this is not necessary. (Similar to what Alterra's CEO said a while back).
    -Masks will be required in mazes, on lifts and in lodges, but they are not planning on any additional staffing for lift ops to help with soc distancing or face masks and will leave it up to "self-policing."
    -They will reconfigure lift mazes to try to spread out adjoining lines.
    -They do not plan to increase lift capacity (open Challenger, Iron Horse, etc.) on non-weekends/holidays and aux lifts will be open the same as last year.
    -The most notable changes will be for indoor spaces and food service, which will have capacity limits and more outdoor food service options.
    -Everything is subject to change on the fly.

    That is fucking stupid.
    A) How can that many day ticket skiers/riders make up the normal daily load of people, so that it makes a 50% decrease?

    B) Loading unrelated people on a chair like normal?

    I think the State will step in.

    For my sanity, I hope the states don't step in.

    We don't care about your sanity.
    I'll be surprised if California doesn't make some rules. They have extensive rules for everything else.

    Loading lifts like normal... ugh.

    Yes being outside and wearing a mask are great mitigation. The headwind from the lift is also helpful.

    Your mouth being 18 inches away from a stranger's mouth is NOT a good idea. A mild crosswind could make that effectively even closer depending on who is sitting where.

    Do any IKON resorts have bubbles like The Can's orange bubble? I swear, the first person who tries to put the bubble down with me in the chair will get a ski pole handle between the eyes.

    Interesting.

    Again, outside - with a mask on - is a hell of a lot different than inside. Further, new data is suggesting that surfaces are not a big factor in spreading, so it's mainly open mouth to open mouth, figuratively speaking.

    Ergo, outside with a mask makes sense to me. Let it snow!

    One of the big concerns that was expressed was that the anti-mask crowd will remove masks after loading lift to "make a point" as we've seen time and again across the country and that self-policing is not realistically gonna work.
