Banking on summer: Ski resorts seek return on year-round investment

At Vail Mountain, grown men could be heard screaming with fear and excitement as they raced down the summer tubing hill. Tangled in ropes, the eyes of toddlers grew large as they contemplated their next step on the obstacle course. On a ski lift, families visiting Vail rode back up the hill after cruising down the zip line. “Mom, it’s awesome,” Dylan Taylor yelled below. “It doesn’t hurt your stomach. You can do it.” There are tamer attractions too, such as the self-guided interpretive nature trails. That means, this summer at Vail’s Epic Discovery, there is something for just about everyone. By building such attractions, ski resorts in Colorado and throughout the United States are on a mission to become year-round attractions. Vail has led the way when it comes to ski resorts offering its guests more things to do in the summer, while other resorts, such as Steamboat Ski Area, are trying to catch up.
