That's what happens when you're not exposed to the Eastern market in the worst year ever, and a lot of those people fly west to get some. Tahoe was a huge improvement, too.

Re: Vail Releases Metrics

Also numbers are being compare to last year which was pretty bad for the west. I wonder how last year and this year compared to a ten year average.

Re: Vail Releases Metrics

Also wonder how much of the increase is due to adding Park City.  I will have to look into their official earnings release when it becomes available.  Vail is trading in a range right around its all-time high. Peak Resorts meanwhile is trading around its all-time low.

Re: Vail Releases Metrics

I'll have to read their annual report.  What are they doing that's making them so successful?

Re: Vail Releases Metrics

Yeah, cause you actually get natural snow out west, unlike on the ec where you've got to make it all yourself.

Sno---you can't define success just by what's posted here. You really need to dive into the financial details a la ADK Jeff.

% revenue increase is just that. It's an increase over a crummy year prior. And it's just the revenue (top line)--how much money they collected. Need to subtract the expenses and liabilities before you can make any approximation for success.

Re: Vail Releases Metrics

From the advisory service I use for investing - note the 17% in pass sales

Vail Resorts, Inc. (MTN) released results from its fourth quarter in fiscal year 2017 on Thursday morning. The company reported a net loss of $57.1 million, or a $1.43 per share loss, on $209.1 million in sales. The analyst community was expecting an earnings per share loss of $1.81, and sales of $212.03 million. So Vail Resorts topped earnings per share estimates, and posted a 1.4% sales miss. The sales miss and overall stock market weakness is why MTN shares are down about X% this week.

For fiscal year 2017, it was another record-breaking year for the company, thanks in part to strong sales at its resort locations and the acquisition of Whistler Blackcomb. Full-year 2017 net income jumped 40.6% year-over-year to $210.6 million, of $5.22 per share, which topped the consensus estimate for $4.86 per share by 7.4%.

Full-year sales from the company's mountain business soared 23.5% year-over-year to $1.6 billion—and total net revenue rose 19.1% year-over-year to $1.91 billion. The company also noted that season pass sales for the 2017/2018 ski season are up 17% year-over-year.

Looking ahead to fiscal year 2018, Vail Resorts expects net income to be between $234 million and $272 million. Vail Resorts will also pay a quarterly dividend of $1.05 per share on October 27 to shareholders of record on October 10. Overall, this was a strong earnings report for Vail Resorts and some investors had a knee-jerk reaction to the slight sales miss. I view this dip as a good buying opportunity. Buy MTN below $243.
