As New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu ordered restaurants and businesses to close their doors amid the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, his family-owned ski operation has continued to keep its doors open as other ski slopes closed to prevent the spread of the highly infectious disease.

According to NHPR, Sununu’s family-owned Waterville Valley Resort has continued to run its ski operation as competitor operations in Black Mountain and King Pine, New Hampshire closed for the season to protect their patrons from the Coronavirus outbreak. 

Monday, Sununu ordered bars and restaurants across the state to close their doors and only offer take-out services amid the spreading Coronavirus crisis. Sununu has also recently banned private gatherings of more than 50 from occurring in New Hampshire – less than the limit of 25 neighboring Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker instituted on Sunday. 

As of 1 pm Wednesday, Sununu’s ski facility remained open.
