We considered it but ultimately decided that it wasn't worth the risk for us. Would prefer to rent a house somewhere but with all the quarantine requirements and uncertainty about school requirements after travel, we are not doing that either.
I think it’s safe but not particularly relaxing since you have to socially distance and wear a mask all the time and generally be on your toes. I would consider renting a house (and I generally much prefer hotels).
Yes and already have it booked.
And where and why would I go? Hotels are no fun with a family and resorts are all in warm weather places that aren't taking the virus seriously. And then we would have to quarantine for two weeks upon returning. Not worth it.
Local to ski? ...
@Anonymous I can't imagine that will be fun this winter. And I hear that mountains will be limiting skiers and some are talking about doing night before lotteries to determine who gets to ski. So you could book a room and then not be able to get on the hill.
@Anonymous How can you not imagine that skiing will be fun? It's actually the ideal Covid activity. It's outdoors, you're wearing masks and gloves anyway, you don't need to be close to other people (they'll put just one family at a time on the lifts). Most places even have outdoor lunch service. And presumably limiting number of skiers will mean shorter lift lines - what could be better??
I would rather rent a house, not comfortable with either hotel or resort where you will keep running into people all the time and need to worry about masking up. I would rather have my own space and nobody around.
In NYC we wear masks everywhere we go - how is it worse at a resort?
We don't have plans for the near future, but we did stay in hotels upstate in August and had a great time. So staying in a hotel per se I think is fine. Not sure about wintertime though, when people will have to stay inside longer.
I wish we could get away but realistically it is not going to happen this year. Traveling with a toddler is stressful during normal times and now it’s way worse.
Vermont mom. There is barely anywhere in the country we could go without having to quarantine on return. So, no.
