Hunter Mountain, NY was closed yesterday January 5, 2020 and will remain closed today January 6, 2020. The ski area posted this statement on the reason for pausing operations:
“Hunter Mountain will remain closed tomorrow, Jan. 6. The safety of our employees and guests is our top priority and we will always ensure that we have sufficient safety personnel available for mountain operations prior to opening. Unfortunately, this morning at Hunter Mountain, a number of ski patrollers excluded out of work relating to COVID-19 which is impacting today and tomorrow’s operations. We are assessing our ability to operate for the rest of this week and will provide updates on our social media channels and website tomorrow. We again apologize to our guests for any inconvenience.”
Hunter is the first U.S. ski resort to pause operations this season due to COVID-19 concerns. Stay tuned here at Unofficial Networks for updates on this developing story.
