Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Been open since Wednesday - shitshow of a lottery for the 600 daily places given approx 100k skiers and passholders in the Front Range and I70 corridor. Depressing ratehr than encouraging if you see it as a preceednt for how skiing will operate next winter.

Friend scored two of those 600 slots. Report was "fantastic spring skiing"!

Very uncrowded slopes. What's not to like?

Useless as a system for anyone who doesn't live in daily drive up distance of skiing. Many thousands disappointed vs the few lottery winners. Like I said depressing if its the future of resort skiing.

There's no getting around the requirement of social distancing!

The days of long lift queues, or worse pushing and shoving as typical in Europe, can not be allowed in the days of pandemic that infects any crowded space.

So for a change, instead of waiting for 30 minutes in the crowd for a few minutes of skiing, people were bluntly told not to go at all.

The silver lining is the uncrowded slope.

A payoff that is only achievable for the lucky local lottery winners = pretty soon a dead industry

Pick your poison, a dead industry or a lot of dead skiers?

How many people died from skiing in Italy? Hardly any I suspect.

@Dave of the Marmottes, I don't think it's the future, just the present. I skied Timberline two days ago (see post "Skiing in the Pandemic"). Less fun but still fun enough, and we're all still in the early part of the curve figuring it out. Like everything else, this will moderate and we'll all have to, and will, adjust to the distancing stuff....and the fact that costs will go up and services will go down.

A dead industry or a lot of dead skiers. May be a lot of resultant dead people, from skiers passing it along, but I doubt a lot of dead skiers as skier profile is usually younger and thinner to name just two massively reduced risk factors. However, when they pass it on to their parents, grandparents, elderly people with morbidities that is the danger.

@countryman, um. Some of us skiers are grandparents.

 You know it makes sense.

Many skiers are grandparents.

Many have morbidity to, albeit well controlled thanks to modern day medical intervention.

Apologies - but I'm struggling to understand your point. Puzzled

From Dictionary.com:-
Morbidity is a noun that’s defined as a “morbid state or quality.” Something morbid has an “unhealthy mental state or attitude” or is “unwholesomely gloomy, sensitive, extreme.”

Morbidities in this context means people with underlying chronic health conditions that make them likely to develop a severe form of the disease if infected. Given that younger people are less likely to develop serious disease and require ICU/die than those who are older and/or have co-morbidities (often both but not always), one of the main strategies in most countries' response has been to "shield" these people. Social distancing obviously reduces transmission, but even the most strict social distancing policies don't reduce transmission to zero, and so if you isolate the elderly/co-morbid from the rest of society as much as is practically possible, you at least provide them with a greater degree of protection. Obviously there are many other factors to consider, but that's the jist of his meaning.

Thank you karansaraf.A much better explanation of the word than I could offer but I know what it means!!! Probably a word that has been hijacked by medical academics to mean something that has moved beyond the dictionary. What we used to call an underlying health condition and co-morbities are more than one underlying health condition.
