What mountain’s snowpack is melting the fastest?

    I’m not certain this mountain’s is melting the fastest, but in Bolivia, Chacaltaya (17,785 ft.) in 1940 had a glacier nearly a quarter of a square kilometer, and in 2007, it was measured at a fraction of that, at .01 square kilometer.  In 2009, it disappeared completely.

    Chacaltaya used to be the only ski resort in Bolivia, and was the highest in the world.  Occasionally, a 600 foot stretch receives enough snowfall to ski a short run.
