Buffalo, New York – In a Sunday morning update, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that ski resorts will be able to open from November 6 with a 50 percent indoor capacity.
Masks will be required for those who visit ski resorts, but they can be removed when eating, drinking or skiing.
“Starting next month, the ski resorts will be allowed to reopen with limited indoor capacity, which will allow New Yorkers to practice some outdoor activities this winter without having to quarantine upon their return,” said Cuomo.
The state will also require that the outside capacity of the mountains or hills be reduced by 25 percent during peak days or if other trails are closed.
Other changes that skiers and snowboarders can see on the slopes this year include:
