New Hampshire's Ski Industry At A Peak - But Will It Soon Head Downhill?

There’s certainly no shortage of enthusiasm for hitting New Hampshire’s ski slopes in winter, but there are concerns the industry is headed for tough times in years to come.

To explain, we turn again to David Brooks, who writes the weekly Granite Geek science column for The Nashua Telegraph, and the blog of the same name at Granitegeek.org. He wrote about the ski industry in a recent column; he explains his findings to All Things Considered host Brady Carlson. He also describes a recent case in which police say a woman in Londonderry stabbed her father over an argument about the location of the Big Dipper.
