Apres Ski – Literally

on

Imagine a world where the white fluffy stuff is part of folklore that you pass down to your grandchildren. A recent report released by Bill McGuire, the professor of geohazards and director of the Benfield UCL Hazard Research Centre, suggests that winter sports and resorts may become a rarity in the near future. According to the report, alpine temperatures have increased by 2C since the 1970s. He goes on to suggest that low lying ski resorts like Whistler are at increasing risk of dramatically reduced snowfall by 2030.

One proposed solution is to tighten restrictions on transport in the area to protect the surrounding environment from damaging pollution. If your world includes face shots, hucking, shredding, two planks or one keep this vision of green mountains in your head while you consider the consequences of all that you do.
