Wow wild stats, only 500,000 on slopes more then 20 days a season. Today was my 17 day and up for another week.

The numbers haven’t changed much over the years. 

Wonder what % of 17 and older wear helmets? Nice to see all SR team members (on Mtn) wearing helmets. Btw, my #1 house rule is that any that stays over to ski/snowboard has to wear a helmet. A friend of mine instituted that rule at his house after he spent all MLK weekend driving back and forth to the hospital, when one of his kids friends (w/ no helmet) suffered a bad head injury.
