Your favorite ski resort may be out of snow in a few years
It's safe to say that these days many Montanans are either watching the Winter Olympics, or out skiing a local mountain themselves. We live in a snow culture, and it's one of the things we love about Montana.
But that snow is disappearing, not just here but around the world.
That disappearance is chronicled in a recent editorial published in the New York Times, and a new book titled "Deep: The Story of Skiing and the Future of Snow" - both written by Porter Fox, the features editor for Powder magazine. Fox is a lifelong skier, and now an advocate for climate change action.
In this feature interview, Fox talks, via Skype, with News Director Sally Mauk about his love of skiing - and his fears for the future, not just of the sport, but of the planet.
