This is getting ridiculous. Year after year of two to three week stretches of blow torch weather. I wish we had a record of the number of hours spent below 32 degrees so we could see how bad it has been the last 8 or so years. Once again it is going to be January and resorts are going to start closing and starting from scratch. F*** you mother nature.

Yes and it was his choice - not ours. Love David...

Gotten so many great responses to the story from weather people who agree with the story. A couple shared some links to articles from the 70s and 80s where Snowshoe was talking about so many financial issues due to bad weather and no snow on the slopes. Kenny's own post above showing days under 32 degrees show exactly how cyclical the weather has been going back to the 20s.

Intelligent people should be able to agree/disagree and continue to be friends. My whole take is NOT that Climate Change isn't a thing. But that Climate Change has and always WILL BE a thing. Should we pour less carbon emissions into our air - absolutely. Is it effecting the atmosphere - surely.

However, I posted the story because I am simply tired of getting an email a day when we are in the midst of a thaw period - claiming that we won't have ski areas operating in the United States in a not-so-distant future. That is simply ludicrous. Hundreds of thousands of skiers and snowboarders will still be skiing in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and all across America for the next millennium...unless of course we are doing it on hover skis, etc...but we'll still have snow on the slopes if we want it.
