The trade group Colorado Ski Country USA said Monday that skier visits at its 21 member resorts in January and February were up 3.7 percent compared to the same time last season. From opening day until the end of February, visitation was up 1.9 percent compared to the same time period last season.
Melanie Mills, the group's president and CEO, says "looking ahead we're cautiously optimistic, especially since we still have a lot of ski season left."
April is typically a snowy month in Colorado.
The group's figures do not include the four ski areas run by Vail Resorts Inc.
