Earlier this summer, RRC Associates held a Economic Summit in Steamboat Springs to review some data on tourism, travel, and how resort like Steamboat might be affected in the future. The news was pretty good. In the rougher economic times I would not have thought the data would have shown growth. But here are some of the highlights:

• Occupancy rates are increasing for resort hotels
• Job security higher for mountain travelers
• Steamboat Springs summer visitor have positive impressions
• Skier visits up 4.2% nationally from 2008/2009
• Rocky mountains make up 20.7% of ski vacation
• 2009/2010 ski season saw the 2nd best ever at 59.7 million in skier visits
• Rocky mountain saw an increase of 3.4% for skier visits last year from previous year
• In short, skiing is still a growing sport and people are still taking vacation in the mountains. And things are getting better
