Bargains in New England ski country
Last year was not a good one for the ski industry. Nationwide, participation in alpine skiing plunged 11 percent; snowboarding participation was down 7.5 percent; and total resort visits sank 16 percent. The situation in New England wasn’t any better, with Northeast ski areas posting a whopping 20.2 percent decline. According to industry members, this year’s preseason sales continue to lag. What does this mean for us? Bargains!
