California ski resorts had an unusual problem this season — too much snow - latimes.com
Mountain resorts saw a 12% decline in skiers and snowboarders this season compared with the previous one, with attendance falling to about 7.1 million, according to California Ski Industry Assn., the nonprofit trade group for the state's major winter sports areas.
The trouble was that near-record snow too often closed roads or discouraged driving to the slopes under harsh conditions — particularly during crucial weekend periods.
I'm not complaining. If you wanted to go, you went. I bet the exorbitant lift ticket prices and gas prices had something to do with it.
