In the context of the spreading COVID-19 virus, the GMNC is determined to lessen the risk of spread for our users and employees.

1) As of Sunday, March 15, we have closed the warming hut at Skyway.

2) Mesa County Public Health is recommending postponing or canceling non-essential travel. https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vRxuFXnSzqwrc0wS-T9m6MGKzy7WPRdDo21Rto6qfFY6EnoKnzp9ApnENGcCTOA1qAajdNg-1sfmHHN/pub?urp=gmail_link

3) Also Colorado Governor Polis has issued an Executive Order closing all downhill ski areas until at least March 22.

This does not include Nordic ski areas that offer a healthy outdoor experience with inherent large social distancing.

4) The GMNC will coordinate with the USFS on how best to proceed. We will provide more information on Monday March 16.
