Utah resorts still seeing skiers
SALT LAKE CITY ” Despite the tough economy, Utah’s ski resorts say people are still booking ski vacations to the state’s resorts, albeit a bit late.
Some resorts say bookings have picked up with the recent spate of snow storms; other say they are offering special deals to lure vacationers.
Families often book ski vacations months or even a year in advance. Not so this year, ski and resort officials say.
Still, Deer Valley director of marketing Colleen Reardon says a recent storm got the resort’s phones ringing, though it still doesn’t expect to break any records.
It’s been the same story for Alta. Resort spokeswoman Connie Marshall says holiday bookings slowly filled in, though the post-Christmas outlook is a little soft.
