    Problem with race programs is lodge crowding. If that's allowed I'm never going inside and breathing the air of a hundred asymptomatic youth and family members all packed together in half the lodge with all of their stuff. It's a problem for them, too.

    All the racers are going to have a few months off to free ski and question why the fuck they race in the first place.

    Our kiddo's race program is only doing races at home this season. No travel to other resorts.

    Our resort is only allowing people inside to dine, or to go to their hotel room, or to use a bathroom. Race team more or less owns the locker room and that has been shut down as with everywhere else so race team has been told to boot up in the parking lot. There will be no awards ceremony and no lodge crowding if I read it right. The league is having its usual 4 races (3 home 1 away) and are having U12 and under on Saturday and U14 and up on Sunday which means half the normal amount of people at the hill on a given day. No idea if any of this happens. I live across the river and in another state from my home resort so we could get shut out just because of that. At all of the resorts the parking lots are more or less adjacent to the hills and short walks so that helps and usually we have parking lot cook outs anyway.

    One of the iconic early season race camps at Ski Brule in Michigan has been canceled. In fact Ski Brule decided to cancel all snowmaking this year. They open when they open. Apparently they don't feel they could survive financially if they blow snow and then have to shut down but talking to one of the coaches they canceled the camp before the decision was made not to blow snow because they didn't want travelers coming to an area with a small hospital bed infrastructure.

    At this point I figure it's about 50/50 whether I'll ski at all this season. Too many dumb asses out there who will fuck it up for everyone. I did buy a Whistler Edge Card, but wouldn't want to bet on the border reopening before the end of the season.

    I am skiing if the lifts are turning. In the midwest almost any night of the week or any day before 11 am you can ski without having to worry about mouthbreathers getting too close. I can cook out at my car. I can piss in the woods. I did the same thing in June at Beartooth Basin and we had a blast.

    Maybe you'll be vaxxed in time for some spring slush skiing at Whistler? It's a long season and I think Pfizer will start distributing arm jabs by Q1 next year. But I don't see us getting case numbers low enough for the Canucks to open the border to the unwashed masses.

    Unless you are a health care worker, or considered essential or at risk, I doubt you will be getting a vaccine until at least mid summer or later. Although who knows, in the US I’m sure there will be companies offering ‘private’ vaccinations if you can afford to skip the normal process.

    Health care worker, high risk, or essential. That's about 80% of the population at least. BTW, depending on what shot it may take two.
    Latest projected bottleneck, freezers and shipping vaccines that have to be kept at something like 70 or 80 below, again depending on which shot.

Restaurants in ski towns here don't seem to be following guidelines. Like at all.

    My bet: State of CO public health orders will be issued by mid-December which will close restaurants and bars throughout the entire State. They will have to do this to force stop the ski towns from having a ton of Christmas vacation tourists out and about.
    There are going to be so many boomers in RV's your head is going to explode. Then what's left of your exploded head, will implode from all the Gen X, Y and Z's that show up to spend the winter work/ski/drink/whatever in the rental house/condo.

    It will probably be all time record for skier visits.

    CO did a U-Turn? And just when they were so close to turning the corner. Bummer. Maybe this will wake some people up, and the good people of CO will get their act together.

    Well, dude, I give Boomers one good weekend of sleeping in an RV in a winter parking lot before one of them says, uh, no. That may have already happened for a lot of them this summer/fall.

    Some sort of underground kids ski group bs going on. Great idea, lets hook up kids from families all over the NE during the pandemic.

    CO has generally had their shit together until the last month. Not sure what corner you thought were were about to turn. Our positivity rate until Oct was <3.5% for most of the summer and early fall.

    The current path started around Labor Day and was blindingly clear by late September to anyone paying attention to the data.

    What sealed our fate was the lack of mitigative action in September.

    We are behind the 8 ball now.
