Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) announced today at its 56th Annual Meeting in Denver skier visits at its now 23-member ski resorts increased 13 percent over last year’s total, which is nearly 12 percent above the five-year average. Using publicly available information, CSCUSA is projecting a new statewide record for skier visits of 13.8 million.
We know it's been an unbelievable winter season that just seems to keep on giving. Most of us know that this has been a great season because some of our member resorts are still operating on weekends! Others know this was a great snow season because of the number of pow days you've had.
For me though, I know that this has been a great season because of all of the above, plus the fact that all of our water basins are running WAY above average for this time of the year.
What a day! Aspen mountain is expected to open for summer operations on Memorial Day weekend for mountain biking AND SKIING! This comes after an amazing snowfall season keeping several feet of snow still covering many of the slopes.
