SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah ski resorts set a record for visitors this past winter despite coronavirus-related restrictions and a below average snowfall.

A news release from Ski Utah shows the 5.3 million skier days marked a major rebound from the previous winter. Last year the state registered 4.3 million after the season was cut short by the pandemic.

The industry association says this winter’s figure also surpasses the previous record of 5.13 million skier days set during the 2018-2019 ski season.

Utah resorts were forced to implement COVID-19 safety protocols, including capacity limitations and mask mandates. But the industry association says those didn’t stop skiers and snowboarders from visiting.
