Governor Cuomo announced on Oct. 18 that ski resorts will be able to reopen under new regulations as early as Nov. 6. These new regulations include a mask mandate when not eating or skiing, ski lifts limited to members of the same party and a 50% reduction in indoor capacity.
Despite the seemingly daunting restrictions, Labrador and Song Mountain Owner Peter Harris believes all CNY resorts will be able to survive the season
“Golf courses which are basically an outdoor summer event, where skiing is an outdoor winter event, and the golf courses this summer have all had a pretty good summer,” Harris said.
On the Syracuse campus, students like sophomore Jack Hassett just want to hit the slopes again after last season was cut short due to the pandemic.
“I will be one of the first people at the mountain when they open,” said Hasset, a member of the Syracuse Ski Club. “That’s for sure, I will not be hesitant at all.”
All that’s left is to wait for the snow before Harris, Hassett and many other CNY skiers can officially kick off the new season.
