Ski Big 3 and Covid-19: What To Expect

We’ve just heard from SkiBig3 that opening dates are planned for early November. This is exciting news, but the focus on safety will be utmost and we can expect a few things to be a little different this year.

SkiBig3 has put together a list of things we should prepare for. One of the items that stood out to us is being open to new changes put into place within short periods of time.

There are many unknowns and with preparation, cooperation and remembering that things can change quickly we can all look forward to sliding again soon!

Visit SkiBig3 for the full article and list. It is well worth the read and got us excited about the ski season that is quickly on the way!
