Skiers want to be fairly close to the slopes, on the bus line or a five minute drive. Ski in/ski out are most desirable, but very expensive.

Ski season is mid November - March, sometimes April depending on snow, so only 4 1/2 to 5 months.

April, May, September, October and first half of November are dead times, too cold to do anything, yet no skiing.

New laws being approved now allow for canopy walks and zip lines to be put up in the forest, so that adds to summer adventures (along with river rafting, biking, hiking, golf, etc).

Prices are still high, ski season is short - although summer months are available. Most skiers are college-aged and come up in groups of peers, so higher risk of damage.
