Skier Visits Up 20 Percent At Northeast Ski Areas

Buoyed by plentiful snow and good weather, Northeast ski resorts rebounded this past winter from a lackluster 2012 season that was plagued by lack of snow and high temperatures.

The National Ski Areas Association says ski areas in New England and New York had 13.3 million skier and snowboarder visits this winter. That's a 20 percent increase over last winter.

David Behany, of Brewer, Maine, says it was one of the best years he's seen in his 45 years of skiing. He says he skied nearly 60 days at Sugarloaf and his wife went 89 times.

New Hampshire's Bretton Woods resort says this season will likely one go down as one of its top five ever.
