Colorado and Utah Resorts drive Vail Resorts

By the numbers 62 cents: Per-share dividend, payable April 15, a 50 percent increase. 15.9 percent: Growth in skier visits across the company over the previous year. 15.7 percent: Growth in revenue per available lodging room over the previous year. Vail will see a new chairlift and the start of Epic Discovery summer program thanks to the success of Vail Resorts with strong second quarter growth reports.  Revenue is up for Vail Resorts in pass sales, lodging, ski schools and restaurants. Thanks to Vail Resort’s “geographic diversification”, poor snowfall in Tahoe has been supplemented by their Colorado and Utah resorts. More benefits Vail will receive from Vail Resort’s success includes replacing Avanti lift at Vail with a 6 man chair and improving snow blowing at Beaver Creek.  Another $10 Million will be spent on Vail’s summer program, Epic Discovery.  Vail will get a mountain coaster, canopy tours and a summer tubing area.

After the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships dominated the valley in the first half of February, the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships will take up the first week of March. Sure to Dazzle Until Saturday, Burton Snowboards will host dozens of the sport’s best, and best-known athletes in slopestyle and halfpipe who will dazzle in-person, TV and Web-streaming audiences. As you’d expect with a big-time event in the Vail Valley, the on-slope action at Golden Peak will be augmented by concerts. Performers include Andy Thorn & Friends, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Moon Hooch and Girl Talk. There will be awards ceremonies, and Burton is hosting “Apres All Day” events at several bars in Vail Village, Golden Peak and Lionshead. New this year is a broomball tournament on the ice rink at Solaris.
