Survey: Winter Sports

A Salon article says: "Recently, the ski industry has gotten fired up about global warming. But as resorts continue to carve new runs through the forests, the industry's green image is looking like a snow job." It then looks at even the greenest of the resorts like Vail, that is now powered 100% by renewables, but notes that it continues to chop down trees to make new clearcuts to provide new experiences for skiiers. Even if the resort is completely green, thousands of people are driving or flying for hours to get there. ::Salon What is a TreeHugger to do?
