Rob Katz, CEO of Vail Resorts, narrates a podcast called “Epic by Nature” and recently released a three-part episode series detailing the COVID-19 crisis as it relates to the company’s ski resorts. The first segment explains the lead-up to the decision to close the resorts, starting when Katz first heard about coronavirus in China, which he said felt “very far away” at the time.

He talks about what went on behind the scenes when the company found out about the first case in Colorado, which was at Vail-owned Keystone Resort, up through the decision to close. Katz’ second episode details the impact on the employees as they were asked to leave employee housing with the confusing message of “leave if you can, stay if you can’t.”
