An increasing number of U.S. ski resorts are working to become summer destinations for travelers, with “elaborate expansions of their summer hiking, cycling and off-road touring resources,” according to a story by the Associated Press. Loryn Kasten, a representative for the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. in Colorado, says “summer isn’t really considered the off-season anymore. There’s a big push to take advantage of the terrain and make communities four-season resorts.” The report notes the U.S. Forest Service, which authorizes permits to ski areas in the country, has been encouraging resorts to expand their summer offerings.
