When Crestone does come in again, I have a feeling there will be plenty of shovels up there. I believe the term is "pent up demand". However I don't have any charts or graphs to back this up.

On another note, I was talking to JCWhite yesterday, complaining about snow conditions, and his quote was "guess I picked a good time to ski the 14ers after all". He was right.

Hope for snow, ski on ice while you wait.

Here's a graph.

Someone should point that geology is not the same as meteorology or climatology..

All are Earth Sciences, but cover a different field of study. Being a geologist does not necessarily make one an expert on climatology.
Furthermore, as with many fields, the fact that the economics of profession may be adversely impacted by news offered can and has caused bias in those fields against data that could cut into the economics of it.
Asking a petroleum geologist about global warming could be compared to asking a tobacco company "scientist" about the negative affect of smoking. We all (hopefully) remember how that went. Bias exists…. Just sayin.

You left out one more option. Contribute to the burning of fossil fuels by driving or flying to where there is snow. I like the graph though.

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

I think Winston Churchill said it best when asked about his thoughts on Germany, "You know, I haven't listened to the radio much, recently"

Yeah. Driving to Wolf Creek, Silverton, Molas, Red Mtn, and Jackson proved worthwhile last year. Not looking so easy this year. Thinking about Japan again? Been following this thread http://forums.ski.com.au/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1774858&page=7 and it sounds like things are starting to look pretty good over there.
