Colorado Ski Industry Hoping For Strong Finish To Difficult Season
More than halfway through a snowy February, Colorado ski industry officials hope the momentum carries into the spring, a season beloved by regulars and visitors alike who know conditions to be most promising in the final weeks of chairlifts running.
COVID-19 restrictions have been loosened at some ski areas — capacities increased and lessons and other programs restored. Thanks to recent weather, terrain has expanded.
And "that allows us to have more people up here too," said Taylor Prather, spokeswoman for Copper Mountain Resort, which has required parking reservations this season to space out guests. "So we'll be focused on getting people up, spreading people out and making sure they're in compliance with state and county public health guidelines and rules."
