Major changes to posh U.S. slopesLast Updated ( Thursday, 04 March 2010 13:38 )
Forbes - On New Year's Eve in Vail, Colo. the last flakes of a foot of new powder fell by 8 a.m., revealing a crisp blue sky and snow-laden ponderosa pine branches bent earthward. By 11 a.m. the four-person lifts raised long lines of skiers to the summit.
But for some families heading up the slopes their journeys ended there. Kids, many helmeted and armed with snowboards, headed toward jumps and terrain parks while their parents looked for easier cruiser runs. This scene is playing out at resorts across the country. Though people born between 1946 and 1963 have for years fueled the $5 billion ski industry, many are expected to soon exit the sport.
