Covid Escapes to the Mountains Prompt New Winter Travel Tips

 

 

 

Folks are heading to the mountains in droves this winter to get a break from the Covid confinement.  Public Affairs Officer for the Deschutes National Forest Jean Nelson-Dean has some tips for you if you’re heading up north …

 

  • Be sure to check the weather and road conditions before you go
  • Pack a winter safety kit with extra clothes, water, and food
  • Leave in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid heavy traffic
  • Don’t block traffic or park illegally so snow plows can get through

 

The pandemic has forced many of the ski areas to change their hours or operate with reduced capacities – something else you should check on before heading out.
