(WBNG) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Oct. 18 that ski resorts can reopen at 50% capacity in November with restrictions.
The restrictions include wearing mask whenever not eating, drinking or skiing, social distancing between parties, disinfection of rental equipment, and limiting lifts to be members of the same party.
SkiCNY, ski resort in Central New York, says they are pretty pleased with the restrictions. They say they anticipate a busy season, adding that people are eager to be doing activities after being so cooped up.
SkiCNY says they have already seen an increase in sales for passes earlier this fall. They say they may even have to add more employees for the season.
The resort says it hopes to be open by Dec. 1 and that the weather will be in their favor this year.
