Three ways possibly.... figure out how to get people to visit more at non-peak times, get more people to visit less popular resorts, and open more resorts (or close less of them).How do you get growth without crowding???
On that last point, the total number of US resorts has continued to go down, though not hugely. I think that, combined with a focus on the more popular resorts and times, has created a lot of the crowding.
Personally, I've been averaging like 25 days a year the last few seasons, spread across the midA, New England, and western trips. And in the last 5 years, I've probably had 3 or 4 days I'd have called crowded, out of ~125 days skied.
