The 2017/2018 season for US ski resorts saw mixed snow conditions. Despite the scenario a number of Ski Resort Associations reported positive seasons.

Vermont: The Vermont Ski Areas Association (VSAA) reported 3.97 million skier visits at its member resorts during the 2017-18 season, a year-over-year increase of 1.2 percent, but just below the state’s 10-year average. Those visits helped generate $1.6 billion in economic activity during the winter season in Vermont.

Utah: Despite limited help from Mother Nature during the 2017-18 ski season, Utah ski areas posted their sixth-best season in terms of skier visits. Starting Nov. 21 at Brighton Resort and ending May 13 at Snowbird, visits for the season totaled 4,145,321—down 9.6 percent from last season’s all-time record but even with Utah’s 10-year average.

Colorado: Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) announced today at its 55th Annual Meeting in downtown Denver skier visits at its now 24-member ski resorts tallied 7.1 million during the 2017-18 winter season. This year’s total is just slightly ahead of the five-year average, and only 2 percent lower than in 2016-17.
