    Sun Peaks is the best Canadian resort, amongst a few including Whistler, that I have skied. HiYi, Nancy Green, love skiing with you.

  2. Colorado Wellington says:

    “As for the Western part of the country, it will lose an estimated 25 to 100 percent of its snowpack by 2100 if greenhouse-gas emissions are not curtailed — reducing the snowpack in Park City, Utah, to zero and relegating skiing to the top quarter of Ajax Mountain in Aspen.”

    “There will still be a sliver of winter. That sliver is going to get smaller and smaller.”
    ———-
    “Nothing besides a national policy shift on how we create and consume energy will keep our mountains white in the winter — and slow global warming to a safe level.

    This is no longer a scientific debate. It is scientific fact.”

    -Porter Fox, Features Editor at Powder magazine and the author of “Deep: The Story of Skiing and the Future of Snow

    So there. This is a scientific fact. And as you were told more than once, it’s unpatriotic to say otherwise.

    ”This thing of denying science … To deny what scientists or scientific evidence is showing is inappropriate, and as I said earlier, to me when I get wound up, it’s unpatriotic!”

    -Bill Nye, the Science Guy, Rachel Maddow Show
