I flew for four trips out west last season. No issues. Of course, planes won't be quite so empty this winter. Although by April, the flights to/from SLC to RDU were pretty full.

Have plans in place for trips out west in Dec, Feb, and Alta in April per usual. Since I'm retired and have a new AWD SUV (replacing an old minivan), I'm going to drive out to Colorado in Dec to meet up with my ski buddies. One lives out in Albuquerque and another will drive back east with me during the week before Christmas.
2021-22 plans: Wolf Creek in Dec; Massanutten, Cataloochee, Timberline, Taos in Feb; Alta/Snowbird, Mt. Bachelor in April.

Had to cancel our trip to Red River last January due to NM still having their covid quarantine in place when we had reservations. Maybe this season.
NM was a special case for the Rockies last winter. I had to cancel a trip to Taos planned for early Feb 2021. But once NM dropped travel restrictions, a few of my friends and I made quick decisions to go in March. Normally Taos in March is best avoided because of the Texas school vacation schedule. But with capacity limits and other public health measures in place, seemed worth the effort.

We had enough people do set up two Private Ski Weeks. Worked out very well. With 4 people, a Private Ski Week is about the same as a regular Ski Week. This season a regular Ski Week is $350. A great deal for 6 consecutive morning lessons with a very experienced instructor, max 7 students. Taos runs Ski Weeks every week starting mid-Dec.

Aspen is requiring vaccination for their "fine dining" indoor restaurants. Also for their hotels, but that doesn't really impact many travelers.

Jackson Hole is only requiring face masks on the tram. No masks or capacity limitations for the gondolas.

I have a trip planned to McCall, ID in January. Going to hit Brundage and Tamarack (Indy pass!). I went last year in March with no issues. But now, my work requires a negative test 3 days after any travel via mass transit (current policy, but we have a vaccine mandate incoming so that might change).
