Glade survey results: what do skiers think will happen next season?

#3
The survey results seem to be about what one would expect. Resorts limiting numbers, cutting amenities, and the rest of us somewhat reluctant to travel about sums it up.

I think there will be more purchasing of backcountry equipment, though. I wonder what shops are ready for this.

Ski Monster in Boston is now open by appt. only, I’m going in a few weeks to get my AT boots worked on. Last season was my first with them and I discovered a bony spot on both heels that I never knew I had until going uphill in these boots! So I need some little mold/stretch/grind whatever.. I’m very excited to go to a ski shop, but I’m only going because it’s not open to the general public and will have very restricted access.

Here's what a ski shop in the DC metro area is doing starting in August. Another ski shop that serves DC and northern VA re-opened in mid-July. The shop in Charlottesville, VA was open by mid-May because it sells stuff for biking and water play during the summer. These shops are relatively small but rarely get too crowded, except perhaps on a few weekends when they have a special sale. So the limitation on capacity may not be making that much difference during the summer. All are independently owned by a local and have been popular for a few decades.
