The Nordic Center and Tubing areas will also be open by this weekend

Apparently that area needs more snow. A press release from the ski area says;
"We will continue to evaluate conditions and we will update open lifts and terrain on Thursday morning. Our Nordic Center will open on Friday, December 17th and our Tubing Operation is slated to open on Saturday, December 18th.  While Nordic and Tubing tickets may be purchased on-site, all lift tickets must be purchased in advance.  Last season, we experienced many SOLD OUT days, so we want to be sure you do not make the trip without having your lift ticket handled.
While this is our plan, please keep checking the SNOW REPORT PAGE for daily updates."

There are some COVID-19 requirements

Masks are not required outdoors.  However Masks are required in our buildings unless you are consuming food and beverages inside one of the dining areas.
