Wyo. ski industry posts good, late results

CASPER, Wyo. – The ski season nearing the end in Wyoming.

A lack of snow early hurt ski resorts around the state, but large amounts of snow since late January brought skiers out for a strong finish.

Many resorts close after this weekend.

Last year, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort recorded about 438,000 skier days. This year’s total is expected to be down some.

Grand Targhee Resort received only about 60 percent of its annual snowfall but it reports the number of skier days is ahead of last year’s pace.

White Pine Ski Area and Resort near Pinedale reports an off year, due mostly to a lack of snow and the economy.

Hogadon Ski Area near Casper says ticket sales are exceeding last year by about 15 percent.
