Ski industry group reports more visits in ’09-’10

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – A ski industry group’s preliminary report says visits to U.S. ski resorts rose 4.2 percent to 59.7 million last season.

The National Ski Areas Association said Tuesday that preliminary figures show the 2009-10 season was the second-best on record, after 60.5 million visits in the 2007-08 season.

A visit is one person skiing or snowboarding one day. The figures are based on the Kottke National End of Season Survey and will be updated in July.

Resorts in the northeast had a 2.7 percent decrease. Visits in all other regions increased by 3.2 to 7.2 percent.
