LAKESIDE - It looks like it's been a banner year for Blacktail Mountain Ski Area where a record number of skiers visited the slopes.
Ski area manager Steve Spencer says the Lakeside ski hill saw a nearly 5% increase in business this year over 2012. Much of that success is being attributed to out-of-state and Canadian visitors.
Blacktail closed on Sunday, but this year there are plans for many summer season events.
Spencer told us that people who ski Blacktail regularly network with others and word of mouth has really helped their business.
