Vail Resorts Reports Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Results and Provides Outlook for Fiscal 2021 Third Quarter
BROOMFIELD, Colo. - March 11, 2021 - Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: MTN) today reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 ended January 31, 2021 and provided the Company’s ski season-to-date metrics through March 7, 2021, both of which were negatively impacted by COVID-19 and related limitations and restrictions.
•Net income attributable to Vail Resorts, Inc. was $147.8 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2021, a decrease of 28.4% compared to the second fiscal quarter of 2020, primarily as a result of the negative impacts of COVID-19.
•Resort Reported EBITDA was $276.1 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2021, compared to a Resort Reported EBITDA of $378.3 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2020, primarily as a result of the negative impacts from capacity restrictions related to COVID-19 and challenging early season conditions, partially offset by disciplined cost management.
•Results continued to improve in January and February following the peak holiday period, with season-to-date total skier visits down 8.2% and total lift revenue down 8.9% through March 7, 2021 compared to the prior year season-to-date period through March 8, 2020. Our ski school, food and beverage and retail/rental businesses continue to be more significantly impacted by the significant capacity and operating restrictions associated with COVID-19.
•The Company issued guidance for the nine months ended April 30, 2021 and expects Resort Reported EBITDA to be between $560 million and $600 million assuming current regulations, health and safety precautions and that levels of demand and normal conditions persist through the spring, consistent with current levels.
•We continue to maintain significant liquidity with $1.4 billion of cash on hand as of February 28, 2021 and $597 million of availability under our U.S. and Whistler Blackcomb revolving credit facilities.
