What is the future of snow in America?  Can you imagine a world without snow?  You might not have to imagine it.  Snow might be non-existant in 75 years from now.

Powder Magazine will publish this powerful story in its next issue.  This video is a look into what Powder is about to reveal to us all.  It appears that Deep the Book, a book about climate change and snow, is their guide.

“The planet has warmed 0.8C since the industrial revolution.  So that’s the big picture.  In the Northern Hemisphere, in the last 50 years, we’ve lost a million squaw miles of spring snowpack.” – Auden Schendler, vice president of sustainability at Aspen Skiing Company

  1. something tells me that with the irradiation from unmaintained nuclear facilities, the complete lack of drinkable water, the desertification of agricultural areas, totalitarianism everywhere etc etc etc the world’s citizens will be scratching to live from day to day rather than thinking of shredding mont blanc

  2. It’s real, and we know it. Unfortunately, we are all humans and humans don’t respond to anything until it’s actually happened. We’re gonna have to wait until the disasters hit, then we’ll start trying to fix it.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
