Slow summer growth continues but even that wasn’t enough to keep Copper Mountain and Alyeska climbing a spot a piece in the June update of the Top 25 Ski Resorts on Facebook list. Sadly, long time Top 25 member Loveland was passed this month by Beaver Creek, who took over the #25 slot. This month also saw the first ski resort hit 70,000 fans in Whistler as well as the new minimum fan count to be on the list raised to 15,000.
Another fun tidbit is that July will mark 1 year for both this list and the top 25 Twitter version. I’ll put together some new trends from all the data then. For now, here’s all the updates and details from the last month.
