A chilling forecast for
ski resorts and enthusiasts

Yahoo! Sports, by Rosemary McClure

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 12/13/2012 2:34:30 PM

Skiers, snowboarders and ski resort operators need to take their heads out of the snow long enough to notice that their sport is in danger of melting away, according to the authors of a new tourism report released last week.The study, which predicts U.S. winter tourism is in for tough times if climate change goes unchecked, is aimed mostly at the tourist industry. It details an estimated $1 billion loss over the last decade due to diminished snow-fall patterns and the resulting changes in the outdoor habits of Americans. The financial analysis paints the picture of an even grimmer future

Maybe they try ´´Save the Yeti!´´ to draw attention to their cause.

Last year was a bad year for skiing, although we saved a small fortune in heat. We´ll take our chances. If it snows, we ski.

Looks like the sky is falling crowd started with the NY Times. If they keep up this effort, even when there is great snow, you´ll never be able to afford to go because you can´t afford to take vacations after you pay the carbon tax built into gas price, energy bills, and airline tickets.

First day of winter: one week away.
I don´t hear too much worry when the slopes are still open in April, a full month beyond the first day of spring.
Fact is, most ski resorts close not for lack of snow in the springtime, but for lack of skiers and thus the prohibitive cost of staying open then.

We have LOTS of snow here in Oregon and skiing starts soon.
Its called winter, and with winter comes coldness and snow.
Then, amazingly a new weather pattern happens, that´s called summer and with that comes heat.
Man, weather science is pretty easy when you think about it without a political agenda. :-)

2011 was a record snowfall year. So much snow fell that the chicken littles ran around in circles praying it didn´t melt too fast or the Missisippi river would rip through the levees and open a new deepwater port somewhere just east of houston.

No comments on how Global warming was destroying the ski resorts that year.

2012 was one of the Lowest snowfall years on record so much so that the Platte river was recording 0 flow in july and august. Obviously one year of low snowfall means global warming is destroying the ski industry.

I can guarantee the only response we wuld get if every year for the next quarter century we get 2 to 3 times the normal snowfall is "Global warming is causing extreme weather, when the cycle inevitably starts again we will all roast too death. And there will be no skiing.

Snow in Colorado (the only state I´ve looked at) is behind even last year but the weather patterns are no where near the same. Last year it was too warm, this year its plenty cold but the moisture has not shown up yet.

The snowpack on Oregon biggest mountains averages 12 to 15 feet, and that´s the base, actual snowfall is much higher. Some winters it´s more and they open early, some winters it´s less and they open late.

I´ve got some news for them. If the economy doesn´t improve dramatically, it will not matter how much snow they get. The tourism industry will suffer. The looming tax increases are going to do far more damage to the ski industry than a fraction of a degree in temperature increase will.

If everyone in this country cut the electric lines, biked to work and the grocery store instead of taking the car out of the garage, threw away the cellphones, planted gardens and did away with the beef and pork industries, there would be zero effect on snowfall patterns.

BTW - since when are Leftists concerned about the economiic condition of the ski industry?

After all, skiing is a recreational activity enjoyed primarily by wealthy, white elitist conservatives, who, when not driving to exclusive, far-off mountain resort communities to live in their ostentatious houses and condominiums, are also adding to the pollution of the air by driving and jetting into these locations - trips that are almost always unnecessary.

The snow cover over the continental US has been greater than normal this year.

Regardless, ever since the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the advocates told world leaders that it would cost tens of trillions of dollars to fix global warming, and the developed nations would have to gut their own economies to boot, there has been no interest in doing anything about it. Internationally it´s a dead issue.

Aetna Inc has withdrawn its applications to sell insurance plans on Maryland´s individual health exchange after it was asked to lower its rates by up to 29 percent, according to the state´s department of insurance. In an Aug. 1 letter sent to the Department of Insurance, Aetna said the required rate modifications cut premiums too low on both its Aetna and Coventry products. Aetna closed on the acquisition of Coventry Health Care this spring.

Bears are known for their smarts, especially when it comes to getting access to food. It´s fair to say that commercial dumpsters are especially inviting to the creatures. Remember the video of the young bear cubs who were stuck in a dumpster after their curiosity got the better of them? Well, video footage captured by a Colorado Springs, Colorado restaurant is making the rounds and is equally interesting to watch. Twice in the last week, a large bear has lumbered to the back of a popular German restaurant with a penchant for authentic weiner schnitzel, and on both occasions

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?

Zimbabwe´s presidential election was a "huge farce", PM Morgan Tsvangirai has said, alleging vote-rigging by rival President Robert Mugabe´s camp. At a news conference, Mr Tsvangirai said that Wednesday´s poll was "null and void". The largest observer group earlier said up to a million people were prevented from voting. Mr Mugabe´s party - which is claiming a victory - denied the accusations, saying the voting went smoothly. The head of the African Union observer mission, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, said his initial assessment was that the vote was free and fair. Other regional observers praised

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama´s decision to delay implementation of part of his healthcare reform law will cost $12 billion and leave a million fewer Americans with employer-sponsored health insurance in 2014, congressional researchers said Tuesday. The report by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office is the first authoritative estimate of the human and fiscal cost from the administration´s unexpected one-year delay announced July 2 of the employer mandate - a requirement for larger businesses to provide health coverage for their workers or pay a penalty. The analysts said the delay will add to the cost of "Obamacare´s" insurance-coverage

American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
