Ski areas discouraging access to already-closed slopes
First, the ski areas closed their lifts. Then, one by one, they shut down their parking lots. Now, the message is consistent and clear: Curb your turns.
“We were seeing just too many people who may or may not be social distancing, but the risk was there,” said Mike Hussey, the general manager of the Middlebury College Snow Bowl, which put up jersey barriers in its parking lots last week to deter guests.
Stowe soon followed suit. On Thursday, April 2, around 11 am, Ski Vermont sent out an email outlining uphill policies at resorts around the state. Less than two hours later, Sugarbush and Mad River Glen — two of the last ski areas in the state to allow uphill traffic — released a letter announcing they were closed to uphill traffic.
