joyfulskier.jpgIt has been a good ski season in Colorado! Record snowfall helped boost the number of visits to Colorado ski areas to about 5.54 million visits in January and February. Ski areas have enjoyed a 6.7 percent increase from the same period a year ago and puts Colorado on track to exceed last year’s record for skier visits.
The season got off to a slow start because of a dry spell in November, but since then, the mountains have been hit by storms that have dumped several feet of snow. The falling value of the dollar and favorable exchange rate has also attracted international visitors, particularly from Europe where natural snow is difficult to find on the ski slopes.
