Dear Unofficial Networks Team,

I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Owen, and I have been a passionate follower of your platform for 10+ years, I appreciate your dedication to the skiing community and the invaluable information you provide. It is with a heavy heart that I write to share my experiences and concerns regarding what I perceive as the most disappointing ski season I’ve ever encountered.

This year, the challenges began early, with significantly below-average snowfall across many of our cherished slopes. The excitement and anticipation that builds up with the first snowfall turned quickly into concern as weeks passed without the usual coverage we’ve grown accustomed to. Not only did this impact the quality and accessibility of skiing, but it also raised deeper concerns about the long-term effects of climate change on our winter sports.

Furthermore, the overcrowding at resorts that were fortunate enough to open has been unprecedented. It appears that with fewer options available, more enthusiasts are flocking to the limited open areas, exacerbating the situation. This not only makes for a less enjoyable experience on the slopes but also raises significant safety concerns, as skier distancing on runs becomes more challenging to maintain, and the risk of accidents increases.

Moreover, the economic strain on local communities and the on going housing crisis has been palpable. The vibrancy and livelihood of these areas are noticeably diminished, leading to a cascade of secondary impacts that extend beyond the slopes. It’s heartbreaking to see longstanding businesses and locals struggle and the spirit of these communities dampened.

I understand that many of these issues stem from broader environmental and societal challenges beyond any one organization’s control. However, I believe that platforms like Unofficial Networks play a crucial role in not only reporting on the state of skiing but also advocating for solutions and fostering a resilient community. It would be empowering to see more coverage on how individuals and communities can adapt, advocate for sustainable practices, and support one another through these trying times.

Your platform has always been a beacon for ski enthusiasts, offering a blend of information, entertainment, and community. In these difficult times, your voice and actions could help guide the community toward unity, resilience, and hope for future seasons.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I remain a dedicated reader and look forward to seeing how Unofficial Networks can continue to support and uplift the skiing community through these unprecedented challenges.

Warmest regards,

Owen from British Columbia
