I just don’t think the crowd levels at WF this weekend, which would have been about what they were regardless, are indicative.  Smoke Signals had the typical “3 Hour Wait” on Saturday night!
Lots of hockey folk in town this past weekend impacting numbers at WF would be my guess.

Virus maybe, but as stated previously, what better place to be than outdoors in open air riding a chair in a mostly low density populated area, staying away from the beaten path of others to the greatest extent possible? Avoiding the lodge is certainly an option, but I get it, the general population utilizes the lodge and its facilities for comfort and convenience.

My wife is a RN in our local hospital, she works right along side MD's all day long. According to them (RN's and MD's) this is being blown way out of proportion. Wash your hands. You know, good personal hygiene.
My wife is a 37 year veteran Med Tech working for RWJ Barnabas, specializing in Immunology. She states same as above in terms of this being blown out of proportion, barring the infirm, the elderly, and folks with compromised health, i.e., the man who passed yesterday from NJ. But don't get me wrong...you won't see me on any commercial flights, cruise ships, or indoor stadium venues.

Still not letting it impact my skiing but I’m re-routing my sales calls to avoid New Rochelle.  I’m not very impressed that the containment zone doesn’t actually prevent people from traveling in and out.  I’m expecting the next zone to be imposed in Pomona which is also nearby me but easier to avoid since I have no customers or other reasons to go there.
Our youngest son is living in close proximity to New Rochelle and is supporting his "boss" who lives in the "zone" in New Rochelle. He (son) comes home to our house in NJ every weekend...told my wife I'm getting outta dodge before he shows up at our house Friday night.

He works in numerous hospitals in the Bronx and Manhattan and has already been told by some, restrictions for his entry are in affect since he is a rep and not a hospital employee.

Told my wife I need to head to LP to remove myself from potential infection. She's working the weekend and not too happy with my plan. Sounds like a good idea to me. I'm not fearful of contracting virus and dying,,,more like don't want to deal with losing ability to work and function at normal capacity and do everything I can to avoid contracting this creeping crud.

That's the whole ball of wax right there. Or most of it.

With my son at Plattsburgh I’ve been wondering....and I bet you are right, there could be a SUNY-wide move to online if they go there.
This was just announced! All of SUNY will be moving online effective March 19.

I would think that 50 degree rain would affect one's late ski season much more than a virus.
It would certain affect the quality of skiing and available terrain....but that’s always true of spring.  I know you are all about real powder, but spring turns can be some of the best of the season.  Bad enough that the early warm weather will rob us of that, but coronavirus could steal days, too!
Like this season is normal? It's 3/11. It should be snowing a lot. This is the snowiest month, on average. It rained again, yesterday. Isn't that like the tenth time for rain since Thanksgiving? And, I was thinking, maybe I haven't been paying attention. Have we had a good nor'Easter this season? No, right? Not one. Awful season. I've done over a hundred miles on the bike down here in Ct. The last few weeks. Over four rides, and theres no junk on the roads. They're in awesome shape. It's like winter never happened.

Re: COVID 19 impact on skiing

While there has been some great skiing this season (most of my 14 days so far have been great!)....this season’s weather hasn’t been great.  Abnormal?  Maybe....but six or seven seasons ago the spring was a total washout by March 17.  We’ll make it further than that this year.

Cheer up, Buttercup, there will be at least a few good spring days ahead.....if COVID-19 doesn’t get in the way!

Damn right I'm gonna get some good skiing, because I'm driving to Colorado next week.

Two passes in Vermont this year and I barely cared.

Re: COVID 19 impact on skiing

SUNY (Plattsburgh at least, I suspect the whole system) just went distance learning for the remainder of the spring semester.  No on-campus classes, but the dorms will remain open....so students can continue to live on campus if they want.

So, if my son wants to live up there to maintain access to WF he can.

If anyone wants to play hooky and go skiing tomorrow or Friday, let me know. (We'll blame the Coronavirus)
