Ski resorts will have to close by the end of the century

Skiers across the world are going to have fewer days to enjoy the snow by the end of the century.

A major university study, which includes the University of Zurich, suggest that mountainous areas across the world will have less snow.

The study looks at the Alps, as well as skiing areas in North America, Japan and New Zealand. 

Worldwide one in eight ski resorts could have to close permanently as there will never be enough snow. 

In the Alps, the average number of days with snow cover could fall by 42% - that’s around 80 days a season.
