Vail's management at Okemo has demonstrated stunning incompetence over the last few days. I came here for a few days of pre-holiday skiing, as I have for most of the last 23 seasons, fully expecting and accepting that reduced chair occupancy and other social distancing measures would create longer than usual lift lines. I assumed, however, that mountain operations would attempt to mitigate crowding and the resulting heightened risk of infection by opening as many lifts as possible. Boy, was I wrong. Lifts that could and should have been open were not. The resulting lines at the main lifts were insane, despite a relatively modest numbers on the mountain. If management's purpose had been to aggravate the danger of infection among customers, it could not have chosen a better way to do it. Also, trails that serve as main thoroughfares between the slopes and lodging for skiers of all levels were left ungroomed, despite ample time to manicure them after the last major snowfall five or six days earlier. It seems management has chosen to watch its pennies rather than concern itself either with the quality of the ski experience or customer safety.
