BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The pandemic turned last winter’s ski season upside down. But with an end to most visitor travel restrictions and widespread vaccination of workers and visitors, the ski industry is looking for a comeback.

Revenues plummeted by $100 million last season at Vermont resorts and skier visits dropped by about 30%. While it’s not yet clear whether revenues will return to pre-pandemic levels, resort operators are reporting strong season pass sales and hotel bookings.
