FAIRBANKS - Tourism operators in Fairbanks say their numbers of customers are climbing after a slow start to the season.
   
Jeremy Richards of the Alaska Salmon Bake says the Pioneer Park business usually opens on Mother's Day but three inches of snow pushed the start back a week.
   
But he says the restaurant has seen about the same number of customers as last year.
   
Deb Hickok of the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau says the start of the summer season was strange and challenging but the industry is on track.
   
She says the bureau is expecting a slight increase over 2012.
