MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – With abundant snowfall this season, Vermont ski areas are likely to break the 10-year average of 4.1 million visits.

Last week’s Presidents Day holiday added to what has already been a strong season, with bountiful snow for the Christmas and Martin Luther King holidays.

The only downfall was Monday’s rain and mixed precipitation, which deterred some skiers and snowboarders.

Parker Riehle of the Vermont Ski Areas Association says this week could also be a strong one, with other schools on vacation.

Last season, poor weather resulted in a disappointing year with 3.8 million skier visits.
