2014-15 season results fine print:
- Operating days, skier visits, revenue and snowfall are from ORDA's Annual Report and audited financial statements, available here.
- Gore's long-term annual snowfall is 150 inches. Whiteface's is 200 inches.
- Temperatures are heating degree-days as measured by NYSERDA for the Glens Falls region for the Nov-April period. Degree-days represent the number of degrees by which the average daily temperature falls below 65 degrees. More degree-days equals colder temperatures. The long-term average number of heating degree-days for the Nov-April period is 6356.
More good news from Gore - investment in energy efficient snowmaking equipment has again resulted in more terrain available to skiers at a lower energy cost, leading to increased revenue and higher operating profit:
