All But One Colorado Ski Area Abandon Hope of Reopening This Season After Latest Closure Extension
At Wolf Creek Ski Area in southern Colorado, with plenty of snow still clinging to the mountain, they were hoping to roll out what skiing looks like in the pandemic age.
Limited tickets, social distancing in the parking lots and on the lifts, in the restrooms and on the mountain — they were all part of a plan endorsed by local public health officials in this remote part of Colorado.
“This was going to be like a trial performance, just having a very limited number of skiers, just to see how responsible everybody individually was, as well as the ski area itself,” said Rosanne Haidorfer-Pitcher, vice president of marketing and sales at the small, locally-owned ski area.
