Bad snow year may just be the start of the ski industry's climate headaches

ASPEN, Colo. -- The ski industry is one business that is facing the prospect of tough sledding in the years just ahead. According to a survey taken by the National Ski Areas Association, warm weather and low snowfall last winter dropped visitors to ski resorts by almost 16 percent, the sharpest decline in more than 30 years. The survey concluded that the experience may have just been "an abrupt reminder of the whims of the weather," but it also noted there was the possibility that "long-term climate change" was a factor.
