How One Maine Ski Resort Is Preparing for This Very Different Season
Maine’s ski areas are getting ready for a winter managing both guests and a pandemic.
On Tuesday, Gov. Janet Mills’ office released a COVID-19 safety checklist for the state's ski areas planning to reopen for the winter. The list includes suggestions like telling resorts to consider moving services such as rental pick-up areas outdoors and requirements that ski areas create disinfection protocols and have guests wear masks.
At Saddleback Mountain, which is preparing to reopen for the first time in five years under new owners, Arctaris Impact Fund, COVID-19 has been worked into the plan to welcome visitors back since the beginning part of the year.
