Skis and skiing; Outdoor recreation industry--Minnesota; Market surveys


Two studies of Minnesota "skiing households," one of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area and one of the Duluth area, are reported. The studies were financed by the Upper Great Lakes Regional Commission in an effort to determine the marketing potential for skiing and ski facilities of Spirit Mountain at Duluth. This paper presents results for one of many research objectives involved. It is indicated that skiing households represent about one-fourth of all households in the study areas; that there are boys and/or girls up to 19 years old in about half of the skiing households; income of skiing households is predominantly above $20,000 and resembles the respective community patterns, and that skiing at the resort type facilities appears to have across-the- board appeal regardless of the educational levels of principal male and female adults in the skiing households.
