The Governor announced that ski resorts would be able to re-open under certain COVID-19 guidelines including:

  • Lifts will only take one party at a time
  • Parties will be required to socially distance
  • Lessons will have no more than 10 people
  • Rented equipment is expected to be thoroughly disinfected
  • Any shuttles or food on site will follow existing NYS guidelines

Of course, most people won't be hitting the slopes this weekend in WNY because the temperatures are expected to reach into the 70s.
