Blue Mountain Lays Off 1,300 Workers As Warm Temperatures Continue To Melt Profits

Record breaking temperatures might be great for all of us but those at ski hills are not liking it. They are being laid off.
Blue Mountain needs temperatures between minus 2 and minus 6 to make fake snow, temperatures that are a distant shivery memory. By Friday morning all their hills were closed leaving ski rentals empty and visitors trying to drum up their own fun off the hills.
Tourists who booked Ski vacations are out of luck.
Blue Mountain hopes to open at least three of the hills by January 10th if they can get the cold temperatures needed.
I happen to love the warm weather but I do not ski. I suppose if i was a skier i would be upset. I feel bad for all the workers having to lose their jobs.
