The most difficult turn on any steep is the first one. Believe me there is much discussion amongst all of us in the ski industry about the future. We have a great support group in both the National Ski Area Association (NSAA) and Colorado Ski Country USA, a Colorado Trade Association formulated by most of the ski areas in Colorado, sans Vail Associates. I sit on the board of CSCUSA. NSAA has created numerous webinars and instruction manuals for, first, how to bring workers back safely miestenapteekki.com. We have also received action plans for communicating and best practices from OSHA and our insurance provider SafeHold. Weekly, all of us board members of CSCUSA commune via phone conference to discuss our collective issues and shared experiences. The top question and concern on all our minds is: what’s next? One thing we all had our eyes on was what Davie Pitcher from Wolf Creek Ski Area was attempting to do just a few weekends ago. After generating approval from the local authorities and putting forth a very aggressive plan for social distancing, Wolf Creek was trying to open just to see how it would work and what we could learn from it going into next season. Unfortunately, with the limit still in place on traveling no further than 10 miles to recreate, the Governor did not allow it to happen. There is still hope that we may get a glimpse of this same kind of experiment when my good friend Alan Henceroth, from Arapahoe Basin, attempts to open after May 26. However, that’s still questionable. So, cross your fingers … there’s still so much to learn.
