Is climate change already effecting US ski resorts?

    Yes, and it’s not just in the US–ski resorts around the world are feeling the effects of warming temperatures. Global warming is reducing yearly snowfall levels and correspondingly the amount of snow pack that accumulates in the winter months. As a result, a lot of ski resorts have been forced to use more snow machines to create artificial snow to pad the their slopes. However, even producing artificial snow is more difficult when the temperature goes up by just one degree. A lot of resorts are also trying to diversify their facilities to include activities other than skiing in order to prepare for a time in the future when creating massive amounts of snow may no longer be profitable.
