Ski resorts in BC and across Canada preparing for what could be a difficult season

BY The Canadian Press, Sep 25, 2020 2:28 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Ski resorts in BC and across Canada are preparing for what could be a difficult season as they try to maintain profits while protecting the health of guests.

All resorts will require skiers and boarders to wear masks on lifts and gondolas, but as many as eight could be allowed to ride in gondolas and few operators, including Whistler Blackcomb, are putting formal limits on the number of guests allowed on the hill.

Instead many say they will allow passholders to reserve lift tickets while daily tickets will be available online only if there's enough capacity.

A spokesman for Whistler says it's expected business will be down 10 to 20 per cent this year.
