SWriverstone Posted March 15, 2005 Report Share Posted March 15, 2005 Okay, here's a question about resort economics: why do some resorts seem hell-bent on closing soon---even if they still have tons of snow and good conditions? Is it because people simply stop coming? In other words, are people so pre-conditioned and brainwashed they can't imagine skiing in April even if the conditions are great? Or...do resorts only budget for staying open a fixed number of weeks, and that's it---they couldn't stay open any longer even if they had 20 feet of snow on the ground? (But this wouldn't make sense if people kept coming and kept paying for lift tickets.) I'm just curious about this. Scott Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
