Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: MTN) will report its third quarter financial results on Monday morning before the market opens and, according to Estimize, expectations point toward a year-over-year growth in earnings of approximately 20 percent.

In the same quarter last year, the company reported earnings of $3.18 per share on revenue of $543 million.

For the current quarter, the Street is modeling consensus earnings of $3.80 per share on revenue of $595.43 million, while the crowd is projecting earnings of $3.86 per share on revenue of $594.4 million.

As it can be seen in the table above, the expected results would make this quarter, by far, the best quarter in at least two years.

While the chart overhead does not provide enough evidence to anticipate a beat or miss this quarter, one thing should be noted: earnings tend to fall quite close to estimates –- except in the last quarter, when they came in well above consensus.
