Snow brings people. And people bring their wallets. The contents of those wallets drive the economies of most ski area communities, small or large. People spend money in restaurants, hotels, and retail shops. When these establishments are busy, they often need help from local service people to keep everything running. As a result, electricians, plumbers, contractors, and the like are busy as well—all because there’s snow.
