OHIO (WOIO) - Here’s a breakdown of Vail Resorts COVID-19 guidelines.

Vail Resorts owns four mountain resorts in Ohio, including Alpine Valley, Boston Mills, Brandywine and Mad River Mountain, and operates 34 resorts in the United States.

Skiing is a fall and winter activity, and experts are warning that coronavirus (and the flu) may worsen during these seasons.

So Vail Resorts has an extensive plan for preventing spread of the virus on its sites.
