But, yeah, I would take Theo tripped out organs really our guest best option for details on I 70 and kind of all the roads across, um, across Colorado. I'm gonna need to be reminded this Are you still doing the reservation system and trying to be careful because of covert right? So you might get more people up there, but it's not gonna be a mad crush because people are still relegated because of the pandemic. Is that correct? Yeah, we still have all of our covert safety protocols in place. And that is one of the great things about our reservation system this year is that we're managing access every day of the season. So regardless of kind of increased like the man that the powder creates, you're still going to need that reservation And you're still gonna have room to spread out on the mountain? Because we're managing that nothing around the mountain. So that's still in place. Don't forget your math master still required. You know what we're seeing other states lifting mandate. But regardless of that, they're still required at all of our ski resorts and, regardless of vaccination status as well, so really trying to keep that message out there that covert safety is still something we're taking very seriously at the resort. How has this season been in the midst of the pandemic? Every time I go? I'm impressed by how well things are working, and, frankly, how many people are allowed to ski. Yeah. You know, our goal was we wanted to get as many people on the mountain as we can safely accommodate in this situation, So I'd say we're really happy to see how things were going. We're just stoked to be open and able to provide skiing and riding for guests this winter. The great opportunity to wreck create outdoors when so many people have been kind of inside for so long, so it Z provided that opportunity And it's been yes.
