Mountain Travel Research announces year-end results
According to data collected and analyzed by the Mountain Travel Research Program (MTRiP), a forward-looking research program for the mountain travel industry, the 2005-2006 ski season will be up 2.7 percent in room nights and 5.1 percent in lodging revenue. The data is based on 13 western ski resorts (including Canadian resorts) who contribute their lodging data to MTRiP.
The biggest increases were seen in January, according to a recent press release the month was up 9.2 percent compared to last season. April was also up 22 percent, in part due to the Easter Holidays, moving from March to April. November, December and February remained relatively flat, while March was down 2.6 percent.
Because this data looks beyond the simple skier day total, it more accurately represents what is happening with national and international visitors traveling to destination ski resorts. Destination visitors are critically important to resorts and their local communities because of the significant impact they have on the local economy, according to a recent press release.
The Mountain Travel Research Program (MTRiP) is a comprehensive resource of forward-looking research, reservation activity, emerging trends and recent developments geared for the mountain travel industry. It includes reservation forecasts and observer results of behavior.
