Cross Country Ski Data
CCSAA End of Season Survey
CCSAA has been collecting ski area data for over 20 years and has recently reinvigorated that effort. Following is a discussion of the data collected from this past season. 

Length of Season
The North American region had a strong season with great snow early, throughout the season, and staying long into the spring. Ski areas had one of their longest seasons in years, up 8% over the previous season to an average of 108 days, and up 30 days from the 2016/17 season. Much of this increase is due to a strong winter and increased snowmaking.
Skier Days
Skier visits hit a 4 year high with 6.2m days at areas that track skiers. This number was extrapolated from the 57 ski areas across the U.S. and Canada that completed the survey. The 31% growth over the previous season, can be attributed to the strong winter and growing interest in cross country skiing as a winter sport.
SIA Participation Data
