  • As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19, we announced the early closure of the 2019/2020 North American ski season for our Resorts, lodging properties and retail/rental stores beginning on March 15, 2020. These actions (the “Resort Closures”) had a significant adverse impact on our results of operations for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2020. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to have an adverse impact on our results of operations for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021, as further described below in our segment results of operations.
  • Mountain segment operating results for the three months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020 are presented by category as follows (in thousands, except effective ticket price (“ETP”)). ETP is calculated as lift revenue divided by total skier visits for each applicable period presented.
