    Two major ski resort chains announced Saturday that they are suspending operations.

    Vail Resorts, which runs eight ski destinations in Canada, California, Colorado and Utah, said it is suspending operations in North America for at least one week starting Sunday. Alterra Mountain Company, which operates 15 North American locations, including California’s Mammoth Mountain, said its suspension would start Sunday “until further notice.”  

    “Our lodging and property management operations will remain open to service the guests we have on location or those with existing reservations, but we will not be taking new reservations for this upcoming week,” Vail said in a statement.

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis commended the move and urged other resorts in the state to follow suit.
