The purpose in writing this thesis was to study the trends in the Colorado ski industry. The thesis explores the participant characteristics, size of the industry, projected growth and Colorado business firms affected by the ski industry. The industry was found to show an upward trend in increased number of participants and increased spending by participants each year at most Colorado ski areas. The participant growth in this industry looks optimistic because of the new scientific methods now in operation at many Colorado ski areas. New snowmaking techniques and snow distribution techniques have increased the length of the ski season and have helped to make skiing a safer sport. The increase in population, recreation time and vacation spending habits will help this industry develop. The ski industry in Colorado has a prosperous future.
