Marc Giauque, KSL NewsradioPark City Mountain Resort wants to end its season by sending a message about global warming.
Ironically, the morning temperature today was in the 30s, but earlier weeks well above that have depleted the snow level here. The resort is not blaming this year on global warming, but it is saying it's a potential hint of what's to come in future decades. Skiers like Kael Vahl back the resort's stand.
"I think it's probably a hint of what's to come. I mean, I certainly hope it's not, because I definitely like to ski, and it would be a bummer if I couldn't anymore. I mean, I'm pretty sure Utah would be kinda bummed out, too ‘cause that's how they make a lot of money."
Park City will close Sunday. On Saturday, the resort plans to take part in a national event called "Step it Up". It's described as a call to Congress to take bold action on climate change. The resort will unveil a "Save our Snow" banner on the mountain.
