Ted Ligety on the future of Skiing

Statement by Gold Medalist Ted Ligety
on Global Warming’s Impact on Skiing

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 /U.S. Newswire/ — The following is a statement by gold medalist Ted Ligety on global warming’s impact on skiing:

“My parents put me on skis as soon as I could walk and I never looked back. But I worry that in the future the only place you’ll find skiing is in the history books.

“Global warming has become a major threat to the sport. I’ve already seen changes in my lifetime. It seems warmer, and there’s been less snow over the years. The ski season is starting later and ending earlier. Scientists say that the ski season could actually keep shrinking until there’s never enough snow to ski, regardless of the time of year.

“But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m teaming up with World Wildlife Fund to bring attention to this problem and encourage people to save skiing. The most important thing people can do is to tell politicians to make global warming a priority. And everyone can make a difference by saving energy at home and using less gas. Whether it’s buying money-saving energy efficient bulbs or driving a hybrid, every bit counts.”
