Liz Burakowski, an assistant research professor at the University of New Hampshire, has been studying local trends in snowfall and climate change for the past seven seasons, supported in part by the NSF EPSCoR Ecosystems & Society project.
Her findings led to a new report predicting that ski seasons in 2050 could be shortened by up to fifty percent of what they are today, which could be devastating to the winter sports economy - and especially for sports like snowmobiling, which rely on having a natural snowpack.
