Winter 2011-12 Results
Preliminary numbers from the 2011-12 Winter Season have been released by the National Ski Area Association, and boy do they stink…down 15% to 51 million, or back nearly to 1991-92 levels…wow, that was the season I moved to Park City and was a long time ago!
Other interesting items of note:
- 50% of resorts opened late this past season
- 48% of resorts closed early this past season
- Lowest national average snowfall since the 1991-92 season (interesting coincidence?)
- The biggest YoY drop was 17.6% drop in 1980-81, but there was a 22% increase the next season (reason for hope?)
