Canada’s ski resorts are bracing for potentially a major snowstorm this week as temperatures drop below freezing.
Glacial-type conditions have made Canada’s Olympic ski resorts a bit of a winter wonderland.
The coldest winter in decades has made some resorts a little more than a mile from their winter resorts, and some resort owners are braced for the worst as they begin to reopen and begin the process of building a winter resort in the midst of the storm.
But a new study released by the University of Manitoba and the University, in collaboration with the Canadian Institute for the Environment and Climate (CIEC), suggests the threat of glacial-like conditions will not be limited to ski resorts.
They suggest the risk of severe weather from a Glacial Ice Storm is greater than it has been in the past.
In the last decade, CIEC and the U of M have both warned that the risk for severe weather in Canada from glacial events is significantly higher than it is in the US, and the study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, suggests the danger is increasing.
The study found that the likelihood of severe storms in Canada during the winter season is greater in the province of Manitoba than the United States.
So, if you’re a ski resort operator and you’re in Manitoba, you’re not going to be able to open in time, but you’re going to have to open later in the winter because it will take longer to build a resort, CIAC says in the study.
The researchers looked at the winter seasons of the last 20 years, which included the 2010-2011 and 2014-2015 winters, and concluded the risk is higher than in the years prior to the 2010 and 2011 winters.
CIEC, in a press release, also said in the release that this study “provides an important basis for decision-makers to understand the likely risks of severe ice events for Canada and the United Kingdom and the implications of a significant winter event for those regions.”
The researchers say the risk in the United Kingdoms is highest during the summer months, when the number of severe cold snaps in the country is highest.
In Canada, CIECA says the risk associated with a GlaCS event is higher during the colder months.
The report suggests the risk to ski resort operators from the next Glacial-Ice Storm in Canada will increase as temperatures fall below freezing, and as temperatures cool.
A Glacial icestorm is a combination of glaciose and glacial water, and it’s a form of freezing water that happens in glaciers.
The ice is formed by the ice floating on a glacier, then gradually gets pushed into the ocean as the water is frozen over, causing it to slowly melt and fall back into the water, according to CIEC.
The U of W study said that this ice will also act as a sponge for heat, and so a storm could potentially cause severe and damaging flooding.
The scientists said the warmer the air is in a winter, the more heat it gets, and warmer air absorbs more of the heat it receives, which in turn creates more heat, which can lead to an increase in the likelihood that severe weather is occurring.
It’s an important fact for people, but it’s also a fact for our businesses, the researchers say.
This summer was a big one for our business.
We have some of the best facilities in the world.
I’m really proud of our facilities.
We’re going strong.
But we’re not done yet.
The problem is, the storm is getting worse.
We’ve got to plan, we’ve got our infrastructure in place.
We’ll be back in a few days to plan for that.
The University of Guelph, which is part of CIEC, says it will be releasing a report with a draft forecast of glaciers in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan that will provide information for the planning and decision-making process of the Canadian ski industry.
