New England Ski Industry Mostly Shut Down
Most ski areas are unlikely to operate again this season.
Tuesday, March 17, 2020,

The COVID-19 coronavirus is taking its toll on the New England ski industry, as only a handful of areas remain in operation, including two government-run mountains.

All ski areas in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island are closed for the season. Smugglers Notch is the only ski area operating in Vermont and will be closing for the season today. Though some Vermont areas are planning to reassess later this week, most are unlikely to reopen this season.

Meanwhile, a few ski areas have yet to announced their closing in Maine and New Hampshire.

In Northern Maine, Lonesome Pine has not officially ended its season.

In New Hampshire, Bretton Woods, Cannon, Gunstock, and Waterville Valley are currently operating this week. Gunstock is operated by Belknap County and Cannon by the State of New Hampshire.

The COVID-19 closings started last Thursday, when Berkshire East and Catamount pulled the plug. Vail, Alterra, and Powdr closed after Saturday, while Boyne closed after Sunday.
