Global warming means less snow for NW skiers

CORVALLIS - Talk about slushy skiing. Oregon State University researchers said Tuesday that global warming may make for more rain during the winter in the Pacific Northwest.

If average temperatures rise two degrees as predicted, ski resorts in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and parts of Montana could see more a lot more rainfall in the winter over the next 40 years.

Popular ski resorts such as Mount Hood Meadows could see rain instead of snow about seven times more often during the winter and Willamette Pass may see it 22 times more often.

The region has already experienced some of the largest declines in snowcap in the Western United States. But the OSU researchers said they have now been able to identify more precisely where the snow may disappear.
