Vail Resorts, which operates Whistler Blackcomb, is suspending operations in North America from March 15 to 22.
In a statement, the company says it will use that time to reassess its approach for the rest of the season.
It says its lodging and property management operations will remain open to service the guests already there or those with existing reservations, but will not be taking new reservations for this upcoming week.
The company says it will be closing its corporate offices, apart from essential personnel and asking other employees to work from home.
It says all the scheduled employees, both seasonal and year-round, will be paid during the period, without needing to use any vacation or sick time.
