Climate Change Tool for Now
SkiTool wasn’t just developed for demonstrating the potential impacts of climate change on the downhill ski industry many decades from now. Researchers felt it was equally if not more important that the tool be useful for evaluating near future conditions. Thus, SkiTool is a tool that can be used RIGHT NOW to help one understand the impacts of historical warm and cold winters on snow conditions. Other options in the tool allow one to explore how different snow making strategies can work best…now and in the future.
