DENVER (AP) - Colorado’s ski areas have set a new record for visitation after welcoming more than 13 million visits this past season.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1YhilHG ) the 2015-16 season surpassed the previous visitation record set in 2013-14 of 12.6 million skier visits.

The Colorado Ski Country resort trade group released figures Thursday showing its 21 resorts hosted 7.4 million visits last season. Vail Resorts, which includes Breckenridge, Vail, Keystone and Beaver Creek ski areas, said it saw more visitors last season than it did the previous year, when it had more than 5.6 million visits.

Colorado’s previous visitation record came when California ski areas were affected by a lingering drought. Colorado’s performance last year still reached record numbers, while both California and Utah experienced strong seasons.
