ORDA venues benefited from solid snowfall

The track also entertained several international bobsled and skeleton races and served as a training ground for U.S. and international bobsled, luge and skeleton athletes. The track's ticket office counted 7,545 people who came out to visit or see the action on the one-mile long, 20-curve course.

Both the Olympic jumping complex and the Olympic speed skating oval remained popular attractions. The ski jumps drew 19,025 guests, while 16,433 people skated around the 1932 and 1980 Olympic oval.

The 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Museum counted 9,019 visitors this winter.

ORDA is currently preparing its Olympic venues for the upcoming summer and fall seasons. Several of the venues are scheduled to open for the season in June.

Last week, officials in Essex County announced that key spending figures were up in the Olympic region. Sales, occupancy, and mortgage tax revenues are all up significantly when compared to 2010.
