Snow Shortage still plagues Ski Resorts - Dec 8, 2002A nationwide snow shortage still plagues ski Resorts across the country. Here in BC the only hill operating with a semblance of normality is Ski Smithers - Hudson Bay Mountain. Almost all others in BC are closed with the exception of 3 or 4 areas with less than 10% of their runs open.
Shames Mountain is due to open Dec 13, although it is still uncertain whether sufficient snow fell over the weekend for reasonable skiing.
Editorial Staff at Kermode Net were unable to determine whether North America's two leading experts on climate change, George W. Bush, and Ralph Klein, would be issuing any statements confirming that this lack of snow is just a one-time aberration and nothing to be concerned about.
In the meantime viewers can check out conditions enjoyed by visiters to Ski Smithers last Sunday, Dec 1. where at least a reasonable number of runs were open.
