    Strange that those who believe in global warming are also the ones growing bigger and bigger by acting in contradictions to their AGW believe.

    And how are the bets that the bosses of this mountain based business own front beach properties?

    Massive investments in things of the past and flooded territories seems to be maximum madness,but if we put AGW aside for a minute it may turn out to be a wise decision to do so.

    • They don’t believe a word of it, but if you can be use it to devalue the stocks in the eyes of the suckers, you can buy up an extremely profitable industry for a song. Likewise, if despots can keep their vassals in fear of imminent disaster, they become easy to control. It all boils down to the con man’s creed; never give a sucker an even break.

    The wind and sun must be phenomenal around the Colorado ski resorts.
    The must also have about 16 hours per winter day of daylight saving.

    UC Berkeley published an article a few years ago stating that US ski resorts seasons are getting shorter due to climate change. There was a link at the end of the article inviting people to see the data, so I reached out. The analysis they shared was their inferences around snowfall by state over the past 40 years wh8xh showed no trend so I followed up with a request to see opening and closing dates by ski resort by year as this would support their claim that ski seasons are getting shorter. Oddly the lead resea4cher responded say8ng they did not have this data. When I challenged their headline they ghosted me.

    None of the researchers who contributed to the article made any effort to reach out to ski resorts to gather required data. Had they done so they would have found no trend in opening and closing dates that are dr8ven by financial decisions, not snowpack.

    Foe the past 5 years I have attempted to ski closing day at Kirkwood resort in California. one year they closed with a 12 foot base, the next year with a 5 foot base. The next year was a drought year and snow was thin before a spring st9r brought 3 feet of fresh after closing day. Last year there 2as a 4 foot base on closing day and the highway patrol was turning cars around because theKirkwood lot was full and there was a miles l9ng traffic jam. I contacted Vail Resorts to ask why they keep closing Kirkwood with snow on the ground and they said it was a financial decision due to lack of interest in spring skiing.

    also note the resorts do not report snowfall that occurs before opening day or after closing day in their season totals. Those storms are not recorded in their data. when they state “sk8 seasons are getting shorter ” what they are really saying is that they are shortening operations to match peak profit seasons.

    The Dumb and Dumber clip at the end of the top video made me laugh out loud.

    update. Vail caved to pressure and accelerated opening day at their Tahoe resorts to today. First chair to open at Kirkwood had a 1 hour long line of disinterested early season skiers. Mammoth mountain in the central Sierra opened a week ago with record November snowfall over 60 inches and counting. Heavenly in Lake Tahoe straddles the California Nevada border and I try to only ski the Nevada side so I can avoid California’s 16% state income tax.

    How many millions of CO2 absorbing trees did they cut down to make the ski slopes and the roads and the hotels

    If they were really trying to be carbon neutral they would shut down their operations…..seriously how much carbon is generated by people flying or driving to the ski slopes
