Successful opening weekend at Kissing Bridge, despite COVID restrictions


GLENWOOD, N.Y. (WIVB)– It’s opening weekend at Kissing Bridge and there are a lot of people excited to be out getting in those first runs of the season.

Tickets sold out today, so KB was at full capacity. If you’re thinking about heading here, you want to get those tickets soon.

Throughout the afternoon and into tonight the ski lift has been pretty steady with skiers and snowboarders of all ages, and abilities.

A lot of riders we talked with said they were excited to get out and do a COVID safe activity.

There are rules and safety measures in place, but an employee we spoke with says the anticipation was high so nobody really seemed to mind.

“If you see your way through some of the hoops we have to jump through because of COVID, what’s on the other side is skiing. When you get up in the chair and up on the hill it really feels like the best of days from last season and not so much like 2020.”
