DENVER (AP) Colorado ski resorts are reporting a surge in early-season skier visits thanks to good autumn snowfall.

The trade group Colorado Ski Country USA said Monday that skier visits at its 21 member resorts from Oct. 13 through Dec. 31 were up 22 percent from the same period a year earlier.

They were 6.7 percent above the five-year average.

Colorado Ski Country does not include the four ski areas run by Vail Resorts Inc.

Vail did not release numbers for its Colorado resorts but said those four plus Canyons in Utah had 7.4 percent more early-season skiers than last year.

Vail also has three resorts in California. Overall, skier visits at its eight resorts were down 0.7 percent.
