Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A steady barrage of snow made West Virginia's ski resorts popular destinations over the holidays.

West Virginia Ski Areas Association president Terry Pfeiffer says skier visits topped 200,000 over Christmas and New Year's.

The state's five alpine and two cross-country ski areas usually have about 800,000 skier visits annually.

A skier visit is one person visiting a ski area one time for all or any part of a day or night.

Snowshoe Mountain Resort and Timberline Four Season both reported being at capacity over the holidays.

A spokeswoman for Canaan Valley Resort says business doubled on several days during the period.
