It is sad that Utah's ski industry faces so many challenges -- from warming
winters that shorten the number of ski days to expensive snow-making equipment
to drought to aging Baby Boomers who are less inclined to ski to out-of-state
Millennials who can't afford to come to Utah's resorts to ski. The
outlook looks grim indeed.What Utah needs to do is diversify its
winter attractions to parallel its dwindling ski industry and stay relevant.
More Sundance-type events to attract the wealthy will be necessary to support
Utah's winter economy in the coming decades.
