If tradition holds, Ski Utah will be releasing its 2011-12 Utah Annual Skier Day Visits any day now. This event is the skiing equivalent of Enron releasing their quarterly earnings statement and is always eagerly anticipated. I don’t think Arthur Anderson audits the final number, nor does S&P/Moody’s rate it, but the number is always exciting as it is used as an index for proposed future growth, Olympic bids, press releases, pom pom shaking, etc..
The Rocky Mountain Region saw a 7.2% drop, as a result of the worst snow season in 20 years. Last year Utah had 4,223,064, so -7.2% would put us at 3,910,557.
I’m going with 3,951,732. This would put us slightly ahead of the Rocky Mountain Regional average (HA!) and allow for a legitimate round-up to 4 million, while still acknowledging that it was a bad year.
I’ll put up a copy of The Chuting Gallery, PLUS a new Voile strap (must be a lower 48 address – sorry) to the person who posts the closest number in a comment on this StraightChuter.com posting. The contest is over when Ski Utah posts their official number, which could be any day now, and, of course, Ski Utah employees are not eligible as they already have enough trashy books and strap-ons.
