Delegate’s Report – Texas Ski Council – November 2020

Brett Shelton  | Published on 11/5/2020

Not much change to report from the Texas Ski Council this month.  All of the trip leaders (Snowmass, Purgatory and Lake Louise) are busy trying to figure out what they can and can’t do on the trips this year, due to Covid restrictions.  Currently, most resorts are strictly limiting the size of groups allowed to congregate indoors, limiting or eliminating race courses and figuring out what their capacity on the mountain be.


At present, Canada has their border closed to all Americans traveling on non-essential business.  Hoping things open back up before March 2021.


Currently Colorado is open to travelers, without any quarantine/isolation requirements but social distancing, masks and strict limitations on interaction in bars, restaurants, lifts etc. are being enforced.  They are trying very hard to avoid having the Governor shut them completely down again, like they did last spring.


Below is the list of trips being taken this year (and next).  If you are interested, please contact me.
