US ski resorts are hoping strong snowfall can provide another bumper year
America's ski resorts have boasted record-breaking figures for last season.
Colorado resorts, in particular, benefited from a strong showing after increased snowfall kept the slopes in peak condition for longer.
This might tempt UK skiers and snowboarders to head to the US for their winter break, however before departing they'll be wanting to arrange some
sports travel insurance to protect against any unforeseen events.
The National Ski Areas Association's Kottke End-of-Season Survey showed that a whopping 60.54 million visitors hit the nation's ski resorts during 2010-2011, with almost 50,000 hitting the slopes over the Fourth of July weekend alone.
This surge of interest was no doubt fuelled by the country's snowfall increasing by 29% to be the highest on record for two decades. Despite many people trying to cut down on costs at the moment, skiers and snowboarders flocked to the US slopes in droves.
Resorts are hopeful that they are in for another bumper season this year, as forecasters have predicted similar snowfall.
