WINTER SKI REPORT -- NORTHEAST STRUGGLES AS SNOWBOARDS SURGE
Published January 19, 1995
Ski resorts from "Canada to Connecticut are suffering warm weather meltdowns that have left many of New England's best slopes speckled with green grass," according to a report in the BOSTON GLOBE. As of early this week, 35 of the 69 ski areas in the New England Ski Areas Council were listed as closed. Areas that remained open this week "were mostly those that had invested heavily in snowmaking equipment" (Ackerman & Arnold, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/18). SNOWBOARD REPORT: Michael Farber reports on snowboarding in the current issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. Snowboarding is "the new craze at America's winter playgrounds," and the National Sporting Goods Association estimates that by the year 2000, there will be close to four million snowboarders. Farber writes that not "only has a new sport and culture emerged, but also a new industry" (Michael Farber, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, 1/23 issue).
