This is a nascent line of business for ski areas, and we want to support it as best we can! We decided to take a closer look at this group of customers who bought summer activities at resorts like mountain biking, water park admissions, zip lining, scenic chairlift rides, and more. Were they in-state or were they from out-of-state?
This presentation is an excerpt from material our CEO, Evan Reece, presented at the 2016 National Ski Ares Association conference in Nashville. Read about trends in pricing from the 2015-16 and what we predict you’ll see in the 2016-17 season.
