It’s no secret that the ski industry is in a state of crisis.
With the recent recession, the number of skiers in the United States is down nearly 40% compared to 2010.
But this is just the beginning of the story.
There are a number of reasons why skiing is in trouble.
The first is the industry’s inability to maintain a healthy snowpack, which has been depleted due to a number (mostly) of factors, including climate change.
According to an October 2016 report by the American Snowboarder Association (ASA), the total snowpack in the U.S. is about 0.85 million square miles (about 8.1 million square kilometers).
The snowpack is projected to fall by about a third of its total volume by 2020.
The snow will be even thinner in some areas, but the overall picture is bleak.
According the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), only 7% of the country is considered to be in a “rainy” or “sweltering” state, and the average precipitation rate in the region is about 4 inches (10 centimeters).
In some places, such as the Upper Midwest, the average is more than 10 inches (25 centimeters).
Even worse, the country has only about 1.5% of its land area covered by snow.
In some parts of the Northeast, the snowpack has fallen so drastically that it has caused severe flooding, causing an estimated $1.7 trillion in damage to New York City.
To make matters worse, ski resorts are losing money at a staggering rate.
According, to the ASA, average annual revenue in the ski resorts is about $1 billion.
That’s roughly $3,500 per ski resort visitor.
But those numbers don’t even include the costs of maintaining the equipment and paying workers.
To put that in perspective, the U:S.
ski industry has been struggling for years, as it has struggled to maintain its business.
In fact, in 2016, according to an article by Forbes, the industry was on track to be the third largest in the world, behind the United Kingdom and France.
This year, the ASI estimated that the industry is expected to lose $100 million per year.
The economic downturn has impacted many different facets of the industry, and now that the snow is starting to melt, there are a whole host of other reasons for the ski community to be concerned.
The biggest is that the current system of snowmobiles is in desperate need of modernization.
According an April 2017 report by The Wall Street Journal, the current industry standard is a ski-equipped mountain bike.
This means that the cost of replacing the equipment on an average mountain bike goes up from about $20,000 to about $70,000.
This is not only a big expense, but also puts a dent in the profits of the resorts.
There’s also the question of how many skiers will be able to maintain their equipment when the snow melts and how many will be willing to risk their lives to get their snowboards in order.
As the winter snow melts, there will be fewer snowboarders in the mountains and a higher chance that the entire industry will fall apart.
In 2018, ASI president and CEO Robyn Suggs told the Associated Press that the number one reason that snowmobile manufacturers are considering retirement is to replace their snowmobiles.
While Sugg was vague on the exact number of machines that will be replaced, the company did say that there were currently 1,400 new models in the industry.
As of now, the most popular snowmobile models are the Snow Mountain, Ski Mountain, and Ski-Scoop, which are all equipped with a 3,800-square-foot (5,400-square meter) chassis, a 5,000-square foot (2,700-square metre) wheelbase, and an 8,000 square foot (3,600-square cm) headroom.
These are essentially the same models used by most skiers and mountain bikers.
So it’s a safe bet that if the industry does need to retire any of these models, the majority of them will not be able get new snowmobs in time.
To address this issue, Sugg said in a letter to the Ski and Snowboard News that the ASIA is planning to create a Snowmobile Upgrade Program, which will see skiers who have upgraded their equipment get a $1,000, five-year loan.
This program will be extended through 2021, and then will be automatically paid off after five years.
According Sugg, this program will help the industry keep up with snowmotorers, which is the main reason for the current decline in the snowmooter market.
It is estimated that up to 50% of skier travel will be done on a snowmobile.
While this program may be a step in the right
