Heavy snow helps ski resorts

National News // April 11, 2018

The heavy snow this year has brought some cheer to ski resorts. The beginning of the season kicked off well, according to cable car operators. Numbers were up over 36% from the same time the previous year.

But it wasn’t all good news. Although there was plenty of snow, bad weather in January closed many lifts and kept people away.

That dragged down the average for the year – the latest numbers show a 7% hike for the season.

But the numbers really highlight how bad the last few years have been.

It’s not quite over yet. There are still plenty of resorts open and the snow is good in many areas.
