Vermont ski resorts thrilled with King holiday results
RUTLAND, Vt. – Officials with Vermont’s ski industry say they’re thrilled with the results of the Martin Luther King holiday weekend.
Plenty of snow and seasonable temperatures kept the slopes full at resorts across the state.
Parker Riehle of the Vermont Ski Areas Association tells the Rutland Herald the numbers were “very, very strong, and really outstanding.”
He says this year was way ahead of 2009.
Vermont’s ski season got off to a slow start with a dismal Thanksgiving, but snow and cold temperatures returned in time to give resorts a solid Christmas and New Year’s week. And now that’s followed by a good Martin Luther King weekend.
