Ski Resorts and Climate Change: The Environmental and Business Conflicts of the Relationship by Jordan Comerio explores the effect that the changing climate has on the ski industry. The project looks at the sport of skiing and the impact on personal, communal, and economic levels and an analysis of how the changing of the sport’s season will be affecting each and will provide specific data and accounts.

After the relationship between the sport and changing climate is established, the critical question is how to combat the issue. Suggestions will be given in ways that help continue the sport of skiing and add longevity whereas other ideas focus on business incentives for ski companies to drive revenue in other areas. Regardless, the goal of this project is to raise awareness of the drastic negative impacts on the ski industry and how to combat the issue as individuals and businesses in sustainable ways.
