    Probably not in the lifetimes of people living today, but there’s a good likelihood that industrialized skiing in the northeast will be even a dicier business in coming decades. For some time, it’s been a matter of having to make snow in order to operate more than a few weeks at most, even while they’ve hyped it to the point where people expect five or more months of it. But who knows – they may come up with indoor skioramas, arenas complete with treadmill slopes for different abilities. With special visual and sound effects providing a moving alpine background and, yes, a good bar (aka the base lodge, at the bottom), nordic and alpine skiing will be offered anywhere  – like  ice skating, in which case it’s been done for decades. All will be needed is lots and lots of $$$$!

    It is too far away these days, to, drive to one of these resorts to ski, the gas and food will be too expensive for what you get. Back in the 70’s it was hot, but,what I hear and see, people, are saying, why, get snowshoes and got for a hike, besides,the weather really is getting far too hot for a good winter.
