While there may be some new rules for congregating, distancing in lift lines and not riding the lifts with strangers, it looks like we'll be hitting the slopes once again soon.
The easy part is that we're already wearing so much gear that isolates us from others such as helmets, goggles, and balaclavas etc there's little risk to share a virus while on the slopes.
Nevertheless, Alpine resorts will be likely requiring distancing in the lift line (six feet is about the length of a pair of skis).
Dave Byrd, the director of risk and regulatory affairs at the Colorado-based National Ski Areas Association says that given that we're already outside, in the ultraviolet sun and in the wind the combination of the gear we typically wear, and the natural distancing inherent in alpine sports bode very well for a robust 20-21 season.
In fact, as of late September, season pass sales are up almost 20% compared to last year at the same time. With over 470 Alpine resorts in the US, there should be plenty of room for everyone to have a great time riding and skiing.
