Utah Ski Industry

Deer Valley Ski Resort

Ski Utah announced on Wednesday that despite losing the last couple months of winter to COVID-19, the 2019-20 ski season in Utah was still the fourth-best season on record for skier visits.

 

Skiing and snowboarding in Utah came to an abrupt end in mid-March when the first resorts in the state began closing due to COVID-19. Ski Utah CEO Nathan Rafferty says the early closures were devastating for the industry with over $232 million in lost revenue.

Utah ski resorts are ready for the upcoming season -- they just need now to be patient as temperatures drop and the snow begins to fall. When it does, the state could be looking at a third and unprecedented record-breaking season. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

With nearly 4.6 million skier days reported in the 2016-2017 season, Utah blew by its previous skier-day record. And while Colorado ski resorts logged almost three times as many -- close to 13 million skier visits last season -- it didn't break any records. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
