Climate change represents an existential threat to human life on the planet.
An existential threat to the ski industry
Climate change also represents an existential thread to the ski industry.
Ski resorts are already dependent on snow cannons, even on glaciers. And the summer of 2019 saw summer ski glaciers in France, Austria and Norway close early while the 0˚C isotherme rose as high as the top of Mont Blanc at almost 5000m.
Resorts are diversifying into non-ski activities, so much so that we have the bizarre situation where a ski resort above 2000m is considering building an indoor ski slope to ensure skiing.

You can make a difference by flying less often.
Ski Flight Free is a campaign to encourage skiers to travel to the Alps without flying.
