November
Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all hanging in there. It has been a wild couple of weeks. As the Covid numbers increase rapidly across the country, we’re – anxious – but also encouraged that we still have a good measure of confidence that skiing is one of the lowest-risk activities out there. Face masks & goggles for the win!

Below please find additional details regarding our operations this winter. We know there will be questions – many of which we’ve definitely thought of, and probably a handful that we haven’t even considered yet. Our hope is that you’ll review this document, then plan to participate in a Zoom session with your child’s head coach next week to review and ask questions. If you have questions or see gaps in the meantime please reach out. If you’re wondering about something, you can be confident that other people will be as well.

We are excited that it’s cold in the valley today, and we even see some white stuff up on top of the mountain this afternoon. Next week looks like it will provide good temperatures for snowmaking, and we’ll all be gathered – distanced, masked, goggled, etc – before you know it!

Best,
Tory
