How profitable are ski resorts? - Page 2

More Ktown improvments

This summer we have spent $3.3 million in improvements. We must be honest here, there really isn't a lot of sexy stuff! Basically, we're putting a major effort into improving the assets we have from lifts and lodge facilities, to "back of house" items such as computer systems and snowmaking pipe replacement. In addition, we have purchased 30 additional Low Energy snowguns, which brings our total arsenal of Low E guns to 309 of our 1,435 total guns. We have also added new environmental initiatives, including a co-mingle recycling program.
Moving forward, we plan on investing the profits back into the resort, so the next 3-5 years will yield significant improvements.

Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
Best regards,
Tom

i wouldn't mind being an owner of a ski resort.

there are ski resorts though really don't make much money, and have to end up closing or selling. the new owners tend to redo everything from marketing a new resort/ bring in bigger/better lifts.

"the 51 million Peak-to-Peak Gondola will soon link Whistler and Blackcomb mountains." ski Canada fall issue.

After reading that I thought to myself... how on earth will they every make up for that debt, but after reading some of the posts I'm sure its a good investment.

Did Jackson Hole manage to rebuild the tram?
