Utah's record ski season

Utah broke an all-time skier-day record this season and it's an impressive performance. It grow its total visitation to 4,584,658 skiers, up 2.8 percent from last season that was also a new record.

It would appear that in the entire Rocky Mountain region, Utah was an outlier, since the overall region saw a 2 percent decline in visits, with Colorado down 2.5 percent.

Of course, the magical ingredient that makes for such an impressive result is... lots of snow! That's right, snowfall had been generous this season, with Brighton the total winner with a reported 632 inches of snowfall over the course of the season and more than 200 inches in January alone.

Since the breakdown per resort is a well-guarded secret, I like to guess, just for fun, how these skier-days are distributed among individual resorts. Just check the table; no guarantee, just a personal hypothesis...
