Many of the largest US and Canadian resorts have suspended operations because of the spread of Coronavirus. This follows an executive order from Colorado Governor Jared Polis requiring all of Colorado’s ski resorts to close, and the shutdown of all leading European ski resorts.
Vail Resorts have suspended all operations across the USA and Canada for at least one week from Sunday 15th March 2020. As well as all its Colorado resorts (Vail, Keystone and Breckenridge) this affects Park City Mountain Resort, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, and Stowe in the USA; and Whistler Blackcomb in Canada.
Alterra has also suspended operations in all its resorts both in Colorado (Steamboat and Winter Park) and in other US states, such as California (Squaw Valley, Mammoth and Big Bear Mountain); Washington (Crystal Mountain); Vermont (Stratton and Sugarbush); and Utah (Deer Valley and Solitude).
Other leading Colorado resorts such as Telluride and Aspen have confirmed that they have ceased operations.
Taos in New Mexico has also announced that it will close from March 22.
