results for Q3 FY 2013 (period ended April 30, 2013). Vail Resort's EBITDA

$97.6 million. Commenting on the results, Robert Katz, Chief Executive Officer
of the Company, said, "We delivered record revenue and EBITDA, had a solid
recovery in skier visits from the prior year and achieved robust increases in
spending per guest. Skier visits at our Colorado resorts for the quarter were
up 11.8% over the prior year, offset somewhat by a decline of 0.4% in skier
visits in Tahoe (excluding Kirkwood), where unusually warm and dry
temperatures this spring negatively impacted results. For the quarter,
excluding the Acquisitions, lift revenue excluding season pass revenue was up
13.4% compared with the same period in the prior year and we saw continued
growth in ancillary revenue, driven by increased guest spend, with dining
revenue up 13.9%, ski school revenue up 11.8%, and retail/rental revenue up
7.4%." For full-year FY 2013, the Company expects Vail Resort's EBITDA to be
between $236 million to $242 million. The Full Research Report on Vail
