But this trend will only hold as long as winter air temperatures in the region are cold enough for snow in the first place. As the climate warms over the century ahead, more of today’s lake-effect snow will fall as rain instead. America’s cold-weather recreation sector has a particularly big stake in warming winters. Activities from downhill skiing to ice fishing and outdoor ice hockey all rely on low temperatures, ample snowfall, or both. Every year, winter recreation contributes billions of dollars to the United States’ economy.

A skier weaves in between trees at Mount Bohemia in the Keweenaw Peninsula. During a normal winter, ‘Boho’ can get upwards of 300″ of fresh snow.

By midcentury, every state in the contiguous United States is projected to see fewer days with low temperatures below freezing each year. How much the number of such very cold days shrinks in the decades ahead depends in large part on the amount of greenhouse gases that humans put into the atmosphere. But if emissions grow unchecked, the decline will be a steep one, with potentially dire consequences for the winter economy. Fewer below-freezing days would shorten the winter-sports season, make it harder to produce artificial snow, and decrease the number of frozen lakes and ponds. The five places where winters warmed the most are traditionally cold locations.
