Western Ski Resorts Wrapping Up Unpredictable Season

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Western ski resorts are wrapping up one of the most unusual and unpredictable snow seasons in recent memory.

New Mexico, traditionally warmer and with less reliable snowfall than its northern neighbors, this weekend celebrates the end of an unexpectedly good season that overcame forecasts of drought.

Dave Dekema, director of marketing for Angel Fire resort, says it’s the “the kind of season no one saw coming. The predictions from the preseason to the end were completely wrong.”

Meanwhile, some resorts in the traditionally snow-rich states of Utah and Colorado are closing earlier after a warm season with lackluster snow.

And California and Nevada are hoping to erase double-digit declines in skier visits with a bounty of snow that didn’t begin falling until almost March.

  1. A ski resort is a resort developed for skiing, snowboarding, and other winter sports. In Europe a ski resort is a town or village in a ski area – a mountainous area, where there are ski trails and other supporting services such as hotels, restaurants, equipment rentals, and a ski lift system. In North America it is more common for ski areas to exist well away from towns, and the term ski resort is used for a destination resort, often purpose-built and self-contained, where skiing is the main activity. .
