Default Ski Resort Jobs/Industry...???

What is the current look out or stability of jobs/employment in the Snow sports industry...???

Reason why I ask is...I want to work at a ski resort/town and I know for a "FACT" that most of those towns/jobs rely on good snowfall/winter season. More snow = Longer operating times = More money.

I live in CALI (haha...I know...low levels & man made snow) and have been snowboarding for about 6 years now. When I first started back in 2008...it seemed like there was a TON of SNOW FALL here in Cali and elsewhere in the US. The resorts had high enough snow pack to be opened longer. The past 3 winters have been SHITTY. I don't know about other States/Places but...Cali resorts have been getting less and less snow for the past 3 years or so. I just hope it tops off or stays the same for a couple more years and doesn't get any lower.

I think global warming really is true and its affecting the snowfall. Not only the snowfall but weather patterns and seasons in general...I remember as a kid growing up...summers were a lot hotter and winters were a lot colder/wetter. Now...it seems like the summers are cooling and the winters drier and warming!!! Soon...we won't even have 4 seasons. Only 2!!

Maybe my calculations are incorrect and snowfall has been the same or better. I don't really know for sure as I have not done any reliable research/calculations...mainly just observation and speculation.

I also know that certain places/resorts will recieve more snow and therefore stay open longer than other regions/places. Maybe I need to look into those places/regions and not local.

What are your guys thoughts and predictions...?!??!?!

Thanks.
