Skiers line up with social distance at Mount Snow on a sunny day in early December.

Due to the pandemic, southern Vermont's Mount Snow will forego seeking international workers to fill seasonal jobs at its resort this season.

The move is not a surprising one, especially due to the pandemic and the suspension of federal visas for workers abroad who might have otherwise filled those jobs. the West Dover resort is instead focusing on local and regional workers to fill its many positions in a season unlike any other.

Chris Mays, a staff writer at The Brattleboro Reformer filed a story on this topic and connected with VPR's Community Report.
