    Skier visits up in NH

    Of course seeing there was actual snow. Doesn't say anything about the visits compared to any year but last...

    Better coverage of this in the onion:
    http://www.unionleader.com/article/2...19765/0/SEARCH

    "Wilcox said that over the 2016-2017 season, member alpine resorts reported a total of 2,357,609 visits, which is 15th best in the association’s 34 years of record keeping"

    "The 2016-2017 numbers for the three categories are slightly below 10-year averages..."

    Average year is better than record-setting worst year.

    I find this a bit hard to believe. Maybe compared to 10-20 years ago, sure, but I'd think most of at least the major resorts have been scanning season passes and know exactly how many days their passholders ski for a number of years now.

    I don't think Boyne has been scanning in recent years. Thought that was weird.

    It varies from their resorts. Sunday River does not scan at all, but Loon very much does.

    Loon was one of the places that made us get a "normal" ticket with Max Pass. It surprises me that they are not set up for RFID. Stratton and Killington as well as Copper were hand held scanners. It was nice at some places you just had to place the pass in your pocket and walk on to the lifts. Steamboat and Winter Park and IIRC Okemo were like this. I like RFID, there are a lot of advantages to it.
