Abandoned Chacaltaya Ski Resort – Atlas Obscura


The world’s highest ski resort was deserted after an 18,000-year-old glacier melted away.  

Are we next? Though there is a lot of distance between there and here, it’s happening here as well. There was only a years between a thriving glacier and it’s ski industry and this. Also keep in mind that glaciers like this one provide our water. There’s no mention if La Paz lost some of it’s source of water, as this was only 10 miles away.

Lose the glaciers, lose our main source of water along with fish habitat. Time is running out. Demand our politicians, even local ones, take the issue of finding alternative sources of water for towns like Port Townsend and Port Angeles. I know many of you readers value your restoration work, but without water, it is for nothing.
