4.1 million joined me on Vermont's ski slopes

I'm pleased to have helped Vermont's ski resorts tally 1.4 percent more skier visits this year over last year. (Every little bit helps, you know.)

Despite a rather strange winter, the Vermont Ski Areas Association reported that Vermont's downhill ski resorts had 4.1 million skier visits during the 2009-2010 season -- up a bit over the previous season.Vermont skier visits

Other northeastern states saw an overall decline of 2.8 percent, according to the National Ski Areas Association.

Here are links to a couple articles on this news:

I was in sunny Colorado recently and I read that there were more than 11.8 million skier visits at Colorado resorts this season, up 0.8 percent from last season according to Colorado Ski Country USA . They, too, had a strange winter to contend with, but the snowfall surged for spring skiing.

A skier visit represents a person participating in the sport of downhill skiing or snowboarding for any part of one day at a ski resort.
