    I guess if you don't want the ones with velcro closures and you don't like the ones with zippers, then there aren't many other options.

    I'll probably do a recon trip to a couple local resorts during the Thanksgiving weekend to get a feel for the changes, then return midweek to ski.

    I expect VT resorts will have similar restrictions. It will probably result in fewer skiers on the trails which is not a bad thing.
