Porcupine Soup reports that Hunter Mountain, a large employer on the mountaintop in Greene County, will require employees and dining guests to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Vail Resorts made the policy for all of its 34 North American resorts, including Hunter Mountain. “We are fortunate that the core of our experience takes place outdoors in vast mountain settings,” said Rob Katz, chair and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts. “However, as we welcome guests from around the world to the indoor experience at our resorts, we feel it’s important to do our part to combat the spread of COVID-19.” Lifts will operate at normal capacity this year, and masks will be required in indoor settings, including in restaurants, lodging properties, restrooms, retail, and rental locations, and on buses, but not outdoors. Hunter Mountain is tentatively scheduled to open November 19, and Windham Mountain did not respond about their reopening plans. Read more about this story at Porcupine Soup.
