Community Health Roundtable & Ski Well Be Well
Nov 21 2020
The #KeepBooneHealthy Podcast returns packed with two topical conversations. As we look at the overall health of our community, be bring in Jennifer Greene (AppHealthCare), Dr. Scott Elliott (Watauga County Schools), and Dr. Scott St. Clair (Blue Ridge Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine) to discuss current health trends, holiday travel plans, and the impact gatherings play on all aspects of life in the High Country. We then shift our focus to our winter tourism economy, specifically our snow sports industry. The Ski Well Be Well program has been adopted by the four area snow sports resorts to bring consistency to the COVID-19 protocols you'll see implemented this year. Kim Jochl (Sugar Mountain Resort), Brad Moretz (Appalachian Ski Mountain), Ryan Costin (Beech Mountain Resort), and Lenny Cottom (Hawksnest Snow Tubing & Zip Line) discuss how their operations have implemented new strategies to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for staff and visitors this winter.
