Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry operate recreation areas used for downhill and cross-country skiing. No major companies dominate the industry.

Globally, there are about 6 million commercially operated ski areas in 80 countries, according to the International Report on Snow and Mountain Tourism. Outside the US, the Canadian Rockies and the Europe are popular ski destinations in the Northern Hemisphere. More than 75 percent of major ski resorts (those receiving more than 1 million skier visits a year) are found in the Alps.

The US ski facilities industry includes about 350 companies that operate about 400 ski areas with combined annual revenue of about $3 billion.

Companies that operate ski lodges and resorts -- facilities with overnight accommodations for guests -- are not included in the industry but are covered as part of the hotels and resorts industry. However, major resort operators such as Vail Resorts, Aspen Skiing, Compagnie de Alpes in France and Canada-based Intrawest are significant competitors within the skiing industry.
