Pandemic Relief Sought For Ski Resorts


The state of Vermont is considering a plan to help the state’s ski resorts during the coronavirus pandemic.
A plan being developed by the Agency of Commerce and Community Development would come from a $133 million economic development proposal being developed for sole proprietor-owned firms and businesses that didn’t meet requirements for grant funding in earlier spending bills.

The Bennington Banner reported Deputy Commerce Secretary Ted Brady said the industry will need help in dealing with restrictions that will limit lodging capacity and mandate social distancing.

Most ski resort businesses in the state were shut out of previous rounds of CARES Act business aid.

The ski industry brings about 4 million visitors to Vermont each year.
