More good news coming from the ski resort industry, as the Idaho ski resorts are reporting a very successful season.  A rep for Sun Valley Resort said that the ski resort had a 15 percent increase from last year’s number of visits, while Bogus Basin reported its second-best season ever, with its total of skier visits at 350,000.  There are two reasons being given for the successes: The amount of snow this year has been great, which has led to good conditions on the mountains; and, due to the recovering economy, more Idaho residents stayed in-state to ski and snowboard instead of travelling out of the state.
