Brian Head Skier Visits Update
A little behind the times, but I found this spreadsheet from the Forest Service on skier visits for some various resorts. Net is that in 2006-2007, Brian Head got 134,000 skier days which was down slightly from the year before and down 10,000 from 2004-05. I was told that this year, despite the new interconnect, things were more or less unchanged. I am waiting on the Utah annual report to come out to update my skier visits page.
Also, word is that the new skier village that was proposed is dead. The real estate market is incredibly slow. And there are five major new condo projects in Brian Head right now.

Didn't get a chance to make it out to Brian Head this season, however, I did stay updated on their changing snow conditions through their page on OnTheSnow.com ... check it out: http://www.onthesnow.com/UT/80/skireport.html

News 9 in Denver just reported it is supposed to snow in the NW mountains of the US today including Montana. A-Basin just closed on Sunday! Is it time to start hiking to the snow. There is still so much in Colorado.
Have a great day!

Really interesting charts on your skiers visits page Justin. I wonder why the number of Utah skier visits has jumped up in the last few years, but not US skiers?
Hotels at capacity? Flights getting more expensive? Resorts in other areas getting better? Great deals for the locals?
