Vermont ski areas post best season ever, 4.7m visits, snowy winter cited as reason


MONTPELIER, Vermont — The Vermont Ski Areas Association says the 2014-2015 skiing and riding season was the best on record.

The nearly 4.7 million skier visits topped the previous record set in 2001.

Vermont Ski Areas Association President Parker Riehle says "a near-perfect winter" allowed the resorts to open early end keep operating until late in the season.

There were abundant snowstorms, good snowmaking and publicity about the winter kept the skiers and riders flocking to Vermont.

The season brought in nearly $220 million for the state's coffers in winter season revenues from the sales tax and the rooms and meals tax, an increase of 4 percent.
