    The tough part is most of us are used to being able to just turn on the afterburners and put in some extra elbow grease when things get crazy. We still gotta do that, but this time around our success is going to be based largely on how effective our Verbal Judo is: convincing employees to behave and calming down skiers who are pissed.

    punch your friend in the nuts and tell him to get fucked.
    With the numbers of doses it sees like will be available, I absolutely think patrollers would be some of the first in the country to get vaccinated, among the last of the countries health care workers and first responders for sure, but still before the rest of the population, and that essential employees would follow soon after.

    You say it as if its far fetched, but seems fairly likely to me.

    Do you think Alta will be a shit show tomorrow? Whose going? I'd kind of like to go, but I don't want to drive there, only not to get up the canyon and have no place to park.

    Yes, while I wouldn't say I'm confident, I feel my hope is not completely delusional.


    Besides, I got a free ikon pass because this place fucking awesome and ya know what, ULLR just isn't going to play me like that.
    fuck yeah buddy lets skeeeee!

    I've heard we'll be turning people away at the ramp before we get a sign down at the base, but nobody knows what's true and what isn't anymore.

    That's kinda what I presumed would happen but I didn't want to contradict anybody. While that seems like a terrible management and PR move, the silver lining is that anything they can do to piss people off to the point that they won't ski Alta at all is a positive for those who will.

    The Alta has been a shit show for several weekends.
    Plenty of parking then and now.
    Been lots of folks up here sliding on snow.
    Gonna be less cars at the end of the road now that we're open!
    Only difference tomorrow is bullwheels spinning.
    ! Wahoo !
    Here's to a long and safe lift served ski season y'all.
    We can each help make it happen...

    I hope you're right but I don't think we'll see a vaccine roll out until after the new president takes office and the current ain't helping. And there's 350 million people in this country, half of which are skeptical of vaccines. We need at least 2/3s of those people to "buy in." We'll be lucky of the 2021-22 ski season is "normal."

    Maybe I'm just being a pessimist tho

    I know the partiers are nothing new. But alta's marketing machine doesn't seem to be doing it any favors. Funny how Connie was mainly a one-woman show for so long and now it's a 3-5 person show with lots of outsourcing to film companies, etc.

    And I agree that the pro-business Utah government will be the last people to shut down the ski season. I don't think they were the ones that made the call to shut it down last March, but I could be wrong with that assumption.

    Last year it was Vail and Alterra that closed the lifts. After they made the call, all other resorts were afraid to be the only show around so they all pulled the plug. This year I imagine that every resort and conglomerate is just worried about putting some money in the coffers. But if Vail and Alterra close again itíll be interesting to see if the few independent resorts try and stick it out. My guess, Iíve tried to stay fairly up to date on vaccine info, is that next winter should be back to normal as long as people take the vaccine. But if mask wearing, with proper mask, was adhered to by 80% of the population the science tells us the virus would really slow up to basically herd immunity levels. And weíre doing great on that front. Plenty of buffs being used as ppe. But maybe the fix of two shots is easier than wearing a mask whenever indoors or in close proximity. The forecast certainly isnít helping us as I imagine the high pressure will push the up canyon emps into more social activities as it usually does. Get it when you can! Lots of images from around the country of huge lines at food banks. Consider yourself lucky if being worried about riding a chair for turns is your biggest worry right now.

    There's maybe less than 50% mask compliant in the collins line right now. These idiots are gonna get us shut down before we've even started.

    This is where Vail is doing a good job. There needs to be an enforcer with authority to impose real consequence (warning, 1 week pass revocation, etc) authority.

    Today, I am going back to The Can. Obtained a res. @ 7:00am
