That's according to one of the leaders of Colorado's ski industry. Melanie Mills, CEO of Colorado Ski Country USA, told Your Show on Thursday she expects overall number of visitors to be down this season.

The Olympics also made their way into the Your Show conversation.

Denver and Colorado are exploring a bid for the 2022 Winter Games.

One of the major issues that could hamper a bid is traffic jams on Interstate 70 and getting visitors to and from the high country.

That didn't seem to concern the woman who helps market 22 resorts in Colorado.

"There is nothing about our existing transportation system that would have to be fundamentally changed in order for Denver and Colorado to host the Olympics, for a two-week period in 2022," Mills said.

Mills said the Colorado Department of Transportation could put traffic restrictions in place and use busses to transport athletes and fans to the high country.
