Camelback Mountain Resort in Tannersville is among the first of the region’s resorts that announced a closure today because of the coronavirus.

The company said it would temporarily close the entire resort, starting 4 p.m. Tuesday and reopen April 2.

“Your safety and health is our primary focus and we continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and follow the CDC and U.S. public health recommendations as they evolve,” said Shawn Hauver, president and managing director of Camelback Resort, in a letter. This temporary closure will encompass all operations including the Ski Mountain and Snowtubing Park, Hauver said.
Hauver said there have been no cases of COVID-19 at Camelback Resort, however with recent
focus from federal and state government officials on restricting large gatherings
the company believes it is in the best interest of its guests and team members to temporarily
close the resort.

“Our thoughts are with those families who have been affected during this trying time, and we will continue to send positive thoughts to you all.”
The resort is taking extensive steps to care for its team members during the temporary closure with working hours where possible, company-sponsored time off for many team members and other measures, Hauver said.

“Their commitment to our company and guests during this uncertain time has been unwavering.”

During this temporary closure, the resort will continue efforts to provide a clean and safe environment for its team members who are working, Hauver said.
