Tune in to Wintry Mix Podcast’s COVID-19 quick pods

Alex Kaufman, the host of the Wintry Mix Podcast and a longtime ski industry member who has vast experience in the resort sector, has been a vital resource for skiers following the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the 2019-20 ski season. On March 12, as resorts began putting out statements on the ongoing developments with COVID-19, he tweeted out this statement:

It was an apt prediction, as resorts across North America and the world have suspended operations in an effort to slow the spread of the disease. Since then, Kaufman has pivoted from his usual full-length podcast format, offering short, digestible “quick pods” with reliable ski industry, mountain town and healthcare professionals to help provide information to skiers and put the outbreak’s effect on resorts into context. Three episodes have gone live so far, with another set for tonight. We’ll update this post as more become available.
