Great snow, crappy dollar make for near record ski year
More than 5.5 million skiers visited Colorado's 26 major ski resorts in January and February according to Colorado Ski Country USA. The tally, which exceeded industry expectations, represents a nearly 7 percent seasonal increase to date. The season started slow with warm weather and dry slopes, but almost ceaseless storms lured skiers back. The up-tick in visits is also due to skiers from outside the U.S. taking advantage of cheap trips courtesy of the weak dollar.
