Revenues and number of visitors

This page describes how the number of tourists is calculated, as well as the revenues they generate.

1. Base number of tourists on slopes

  1. For each open and functional lift in the resort, the total length of all open slopes* deserved by the lift is calculated. This value is then compared to the length of the lift and a ratio is calculated. If this ratio is too low, a warning will be displayed in the reporting.
  2. The average condition of those slopes is also calculated.
  3. The max daily capacity of the lift is then calculated, based on the throughput and some fixed parameters.
  4. The current lift condition is also considered.


The base number of tourists lift is then calculated based on:
The length ratio (1), the slopes average condition (2), the max daily lift capacity (3) and the lift condition (4).

This base number of tourists lift is calculated and added up for each open and functional lift in the resort, giving us the base number of tourists on slopes*

* Cross-country slopes are not included, all other types are.

2. Cross-country slopes

The number of tourists using cross-country slopes is calculated based on:

  1. The base number of tourists on slopes*
  2. The number of cross-country slopes
  3. The number of other types of slopes
  4. The average quality of cross-country slopes,


* Cross-country slopes are not included, all other types are.

Chart Visitors Crosscountry Slopes

The more cross-country slopes there are, compared to other type, the more tourists there will be on this type of slopes.

Cross-country slopes do not require a skipass. This means the tourists using these slopes will utilize the different buildings (restaurants, hotels, Ski rental...) but not generate revenues in connection to skipasses.

3. Housing capacity

If no hotels are built in the resort, the base number of tourists on all slopes will be limited to 40%, representing tourists coming for the day only, without a need to stay overnight.

If hotels are available, their total capacity will be multiplied by the bonus given by the access to the resort (Single carriageway, Motorway, Train station).

Chart Visitors Housing Capacity

The housing capacity is then compared to the Base number of tourists all slopes which is the sum of the Base number of tourists on cross-country slopes and Base number of tourists on slopes *. The smaller of the two will be the limiting factor and be used in the next steps.

Chart Visitors Max Infrastructure Capacity

* Cross-country slopes are not included, all other types are.

4. Skipass price influence

Each skipass type (daily/weekly) also affects the number of tourists visiting the resort. For example, if the daily skipass is too expensive, the number of tourists will be less. If it is too cheap, more tourists will come but they will spend less money when buying the skipass, so the revenue might be lower.
It is best to find the right price for the size of your resort.

The bonus related to skipass price is between 0.5 and 2.

5. Weather

The weather also impacts the number of tourists visiting the resort. See the bonus for each weather type in the table below:

Snowing0.9
