Coming on the heels of a record first period, Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) recently announced that its 25 member resorts have set a new record for period two skier visits.
Colorado resorts are now one step closer to achieving their goal of hosting more than 12 million skiers and snowboarders this season, which would make the 2005-06 winter season the state’s best season ever.
In total, Colorado resorts hosted more than 5.2 million skiers and snowboarders from January 1, through February 28, 2006 — an increase of more than five percent over the same time period last season, and more than 230,000 visits ahead of its previous best period (during the 2003-04 winter season).
“It’s been a season of which all of Colorado can be proud,” stated Rob Perlman, CSCUSA President and CEO. “The snow is the best it’s been in 20 years and the resorts have done a phenomenal job delivering that message around the globe.”
