According to a recent study, the ski and snow sports industries in 38 states have lost 27,000 jobs and as much as $1 billion in revenue over the past decade, because of reduced snowfall and shorter winters. The first 11 months of 2012 were the warmest to start any year in the contiguous 48 U.S. state since records started in 1895.
