NH ski resorts got 2.5M-plus visitors in 2012-2013

Posted: Updated:

NORTH WOODSTOCK, N.H. (AP) - An association representing New Hampshire's ski resorts says they hosted more than 2.5 million skier, snowboarder and snowtubing visits last winter.

Ski NH says one of the biggest increases for the 2012-2013 season was in cross-country skiing. These areas hosted over 151,000 visits, a 57.2 percent increase from the previous winter and a 14.8 percent increase over a 10-year average. There was abundant, natural snowfall throughout the season.

The association said snowmaking started before the December holiday. And in contrast to recent years, the winter weather continued through March, making for great conditions well into April.
