More Non-Skiers Heading to the Mountains, Finds Wyndham Vacation Rentals® Study

More non-skiers are visiting the slopes this ski season, and they’ve got opinions on where to stay. This year, nearly one in three non-skiers said they join their skiing and snowboarding friends and family on ski vacations, up from one in five last year. Eighty-two percent prefer to stay in a vacation rental when tagging along. These are among the findings of a recent study* of more than 9,000 skiers, snowboarders and non-skiers conducted by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN).

The study shows each party tends to agree when it comes to lodging for a ski vacation, with 84 percent of both skiers and snowboarders also preferring vacation rentals. This preference has strengthened from last year when 77 percent of skiers and snowboarders reported a preference for vacation rentals.
