In 2nd pandemic season, ski resorts counting on a return to normal on the slopes
JAY, Vt. (AP) — Ski resorts are expecting a more normal season on the slopes this winter with many virus restrictions lifted.
But skiers and snowboarders are advised to keep a mask in their pocket in case they’re required to wear one inside lodges and restaurants.
Any virus-related protocols at resorts will vary depending on where they are and the local health rules in place.
What is not wavering is the anticipation for a season like years past, pre-pandemic. The National Ski Areas Association does not expect to see limited capacity on chairlifts, restrictions on who people can ride with, and as many mask requirements outdoors.
