New York State Ski Resorts Can Reopen this Friday, November 6

Ski Resorts Allowed Can Reopen this Friday, November 6

On October 18, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that State Ski Resorts would be allowed to reopen beginning Friday, November 6 – As long as they have 50% indoor capacity and followed the strict health and safety protocols called forth by state-issued guidance.

Additional details concerning restrictions and guidance can be found farther down this page. Also, have a look at our Ski Resorts Map Page featuring a listing of NYC Locations with accompanying links.

A glance at social media reveals the following:

Whiteface Mountain’s November 4 Twitter Post stating “She always looks best dressed in white”

Hunter Mountain’s November 1 tweet saying that snowvember is here and reminding folks that “Pass Holders get priority access to book their preferred days this season. Be sure to purchase your pass before reservations open on November 6.”

Then there’s Gore Mountain’s October 30 tweet: 3” of freshies on the summit! We can’t get enough of this snow & just had to share these shots from this morning’s tour. Tune up your boards and be ready to join in the fun with a Season Pass or Frequent Skier Card ($15 off Cards until 11/11)!

 

In case you’re looking for ways to reach out to fellow snow sport loving people, over on Facebook, the NY Ski & Snowboard Club page features a good number of recent visual updates of the Skiing Scene in our state.

Governor Cuomo on October 18:

“Ski resorts will be allowed to open at 50 percent indoor capacity beginning November 6. You have to socially distance when you ski. If you ski New York this year, not only do you have what I think is the best skiing in the United States in America. I know people talk about Aspen, Colorado, Wyoming. There are significant ski professionals who will say skiing in New York is better than skiing anywhere in the country. They happen to be personal friends of mine, but they will say that. But there’s an added benefit, if you ski in New York not only do you have the best skiing in the United States, but you don’t have to quarantine when you come back, right? Go ski in one of these other states, then you have to quarantine for 14 days. Ski for 2, quarantine for 14.

Further Guidance for Ski Facilities:

As per the New York Forward Business Reopening Tool the following would be a portion of those guidances:

Beginning on November 6, 2020, skiing facilities may reopen statewide subject to the Skiing Facilities guidance, including but not limited to the following requirements: masks are required to be worn at all times, except when eating, drinking or actively engaged in skiing; capacity within any indoor lodge space is limited to no more than 50% of the maximum occupancy; social distancing between parties is required at all times; gondola/lift use is limited to members of the same party unless appropriate social distancing can be maintained; ski lessons are limited to no more than 10 people for adult lessons and no more than 6 people for child lessons; shared/rented equipment must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected; shuttles, food and beverage, and retail service must conform to state-issued guidance; and Responsible Parties must implement a property-specific capacity limitation for outdoor areas during seasonal peak days to ensure that the number of patrons on the premises at any given time does not jeopardize the ability of employees to enforce, and patrons to comply with, the requirements contained within the guidance.

Further and more detailed guidance can be found within a document titled: Interim Guidance For Ski Facilities During The Covid-19 Public Health Emergency
