2013 / 2014 skier days ?

Topics of a general nature regarding snowsports, which don't easily fit into one of our other Liftlines categories. This is also the place to post Letters to the Editor.

Why are Val Thorens and Les Menuires listed separate from each other in the same valley and Meribel separate while Courchevel and the upper Meribel/Mottaret sector of the Trois Vallees are combined? Add them up and it's about 6 million. Val d'Isere is separate from Tignes (combined is about 2.8 million)? I have not skied either of these yet, but in both cases I'm fairly sure the lift tickets are combined for the entire ski region.


This might have changed, but when I skied Val d'Isère last 2000, they had resort tickets and combined area tickets. The same logic applied at Les trois vallées in 2003. The combine area ticket was more expensive.

But that doesn't explain the Chamonix logic. All areas are on the same ticket in 2003, but I believe that you can buy individual area tickets also. Flégère and Le Brévent were even separate lift ticket wise.

I know I had a Jungfrauregion combine ticket back in 2003 which combined Best, Grindelwald, Wengen and Muerren.

No clue. Both LCC ski areas are privately held.

But they are on Forest Service land, which means the info should be available. The Park City group are on private land, and thus the breakdown among those 3 areas is more difficult to come by. Their total is shown as "Summit County" in the table in this reference: http://www.ski-blog.com/skier_visits.php

The table above is from 1995-96 through 2005-06 and I haven't been able to find an update. The relationship between Alta and Snowbird skier visits in that table is quite interesting. Alta visits were much higher in 1995-96 and declined over the next 8 years, abruptly jumping back to the 1995-96 level in 2004-05, the first year of high speed Collins. Snowbird visits rose steadily during this period, overtaking Alta in 1999-2000. During the last 2 seasons of the table (with high speed Collins) Alta and Snowbird visits were similar.

From recent observed crowd trends I would expect that Alta visits have been flat while Snowbird's have continued to rise since 2005-06. I e-mailed SkiUtah to request an updated table.
