All of Vail Resorts' North American ski resorts will close from March 15 - 22. This includes Stowe, Okemo and Mount Snow in Vermont.

The announcement came on Saturday evening, March 14. The company says it wants to help tamp down the coronavirus risk for its employees, guests and the communities where their resorts are located. The company will reassess the situation during the week.

In Vermont, three other ski areas have announced they will close. Jay Peak and Burke Mountain closed for the season this afternoon. Middlebury Snow Bowl will close for the season on Sunday afternoon, March 15.
