The season is over for most of the continent, but these resorts are spinning their lifts—with some very important regulations. Here’s the deal.
It started with California’s >Mt. Baldy, which resumed its ski season on April 22 with all the COVID-19 precautions in place, including masks for all and proper distancing in lift lines. (Don’t get too excited, SoCal friends—resort already transitioned to summer ops after May 12.)
Next was Oregon’s Timberline and Mt. Bachelor ski areas after the state's governor, Kate Brown, signed an executive order allowing ski resorts to reopen as of May 15. But things sure do look drastically different than the pre-pandemic good ol’ days.
