Ski resorts in the PNW are hurting right now. Even our resort in Utah has seen significantly lower #s of users after last years horrendous snow and now this years unseasonably warm temps. We always have warm spells in Jan in the SW Utah but they historically last about a week, not 21+ days. It was 46F at 10,000 feet at our resort this Tueaday. People were in short sleeve shirts at our peak run today, which is over 11,000 feet.
Bad snow and warm weather are icing on the cake for an industry that already has abysmal retention rates. The entire industry is struggling to finds ways to get more people to come back to their hills. Climate change is making it that much worse.
Hard to expect people to want to go skiing when its shorts weather at home and you can go mountain biking.
