Colorado Ski Country USA Annual Meeting in Steamboat Springs

June 14- 16 - Steamboat Springs, CO

The annual meeting of executives and key members of the 26 member resorts in Colorado gathered for 3 days to review the past year, rekindle friendships and look forward to the future.

The season past was one to celebrate as the state set a record for skiers visits. The member resorts posted over 12. 5 million skiers visits - one person buying one day lift ticket - up over 700,000 visits from last year and over 500,000 from the previous record. Over 1 million skiers/snoboarder visits from the International markets. The bountiful snowfall that lead to record snowfall and over 400 inches in Steamboat built the momentum which carried through to the last resort closing in June at Arapahoe Basin.

I was here to promote the launch of the Mountain Sports Club of NA and work with resorts and businesses in Steamboat Springs, CO to ensure a collection of valuable offers for our members. The initial lodging properties will have their offers appearing in the coming weeks. Resort lift tickets savings will also begin to appear in the member directory as well over the summer months.
