ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Colorado ski officials are counting on international skiers to boost their bottom line this year.

Aspen Skiing Co. vice president John Rigney says the weak dollar is enticing foreign skiers to book early.

According to the Summit Daily News, Australia and Brazil are now two of the company’s biggest markets.

Company officials have traveled to 18 countries this year trying to lure customers.
