As summer winds to a close, the Aspen Skiing Company is looking ahead to winter. They’re counting on international visitors from typical players like Australia and Brazil, but also new countries. Ski-Co Director of Worldwide Sales Kristi Kavanaugh says international visits make up 30 percent of the company’s annual revenue, and the community benefits. She spoke with Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen.

Kristi Kavanaugh is Managing Director of Worldwide Sales for the Aspen Skiing Company. Last year was the Skiing Company’s best year ever for international visitation.
