We're all trying to find fun, safe things to do during this pandemic. We all know that being outdoors is safer than being indoors, but with the colder weather coming, that could pose a problem. But here's the good news. Skiing will be allowed in New York State! Governor Cuomo came out with a new set of guidelines to make sure everyone who loves the winter sport can get out and have some fun. First up, resorts can open at 50% capacity beginning on November 6th. Masks will be required everywhere on resort property except when eating/drinking or skiing. Social distancing will be in place at all times. Other rules that will be in place include restricting lifts/gondolas to members of the same party; ski lessons are limited to no more than ten people; thorough cleaning and disinfecting of shared rental equipment; reduced capacity on the mountain by 25% during peak days and times. Governor Cuomo also took a minute to remind everyone that if you love skiing it's safer to do it on NY mountains. He said if you ski out of state there's a good chance you'll have to quarantine when you get back for 14 days. Ski here in NY, and no quarantine necessary!
