Snowboarding without snow
I recently got back from shooting the snowboard worlds at La Molina in the Spanish Pyrenees. The resort had been hit by a lack of snow but the pistes had enough snow from earlier falls and snow canons to make the event possible. The mountain slopes around the resort were bare and looked more like a summer scene. I have been coming to this resort for over 10 years and have noticed more and more in recent seasons the distinct lack of snow.
The ecologist and television presenter Bruce Parry sums it up perfectly in the excellent Artic series on the BBC last night..we need to wake up to the reality of climate change now before it’s too late to do anything.
