    I think reinfection is going to start to be a big thing, particularly with the variants.

    Take that data point as you will.
    You guys both tested positive a 2nd time around? Do you know if this might be one of the new strains floating around? That really, really sucks. Hope for a speedy recovery.

    I didnít take a test in October, had symptoms, my wife had them worse and tested positive. I was told not to bother testing and just to assume I had it.

    My wife just tested positive again yesterday. I got tested today and awaiting results probably early am. Iíll edit the post.

    Other guy had it in March but didnít take at the time but had confirmed antibodies after. He picked it up again too.

    Kind of think shit might get wild again as thereís a large ďIíve had it crowdĒ (I was one of them to a lesser extent...)

    Idaho apparently isnít checking strains so we have absolutely no data which is insane. But I think itís got to be.

    Not the first time Lefty's was the covid transmission site. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Shit that’s alarming. I’m just under 65, my wife is over 65. We have been ultra careful, and we are banging our heads against the wall trying to get vaccinated without success.

    250,000 over 65 in Idaho and it's expected to take 10 weeks. The new variants are 30-40% more transmissible and the vaccines perhaps are not effective agaisnt them. We've cut down even further on our exposure. I can see mask wearing/social distancing going beyond the time we're vaccinated and covid boosters being added to the yearly flu shot for many years. There will be lots of reservoirs of this disease to continually mutate and travel back around to reignite hotspots.

    if you're in idaho, this is hard to believe. fwiw, i believe that idaho is vaxxing anyone over 65 who makes an appt and shows up. you don't even need to be a resident. my neighbors here in utah drove up to Pocatello last week and got vaxxed no problem.

    They're not going home - they live here now.... At least most of 'em don't ski where we do.

    Heading up next weekend to use my Snowbasin days. My wife has shown interest in skiing her one half day of the year next weekend.

    Anyone have a connection on cheap lift tickets for a day?

    I can help you out w a 50% off (looks like $75/day including the discount)friends and family. Shoot me a pm if interested. I have to call for the details, haven't used them before. It's daylight savings next weekend too, sunrise and softer snow will be an hour later next Sunday.

    Thanks! I have the same deal w/ my snowbasin pass so if anyone wants 50% here it's an open offer and I have 5 that won't get used.

    I have a local friend in hailey I am waiting to hear back from but may take you up on this. I'll move to PM. Thanks!

    Also KSL suprisingly a ghost town, but boise craigslist has a few...

    We visited SV last year just around when covid was getting going. One of our favorite hills for sure. On the POSH factor it was pretty much the top tier for ski places we've been to. The piste terrain was awesome too. The town was pricey ... but with great food.

    Deb Armstrong and Mike Hattrup ski interview. Pretty easy to recognize the place in the video once you see them on the chair together. Hattrup seems like a very down-to-earth and approachable fellow. Good to see Deb doing so much on moguls lately too.

    Just wanted to share this for those that don't follow Deb.
