ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – An Aspen skiing official and several ski athletes are heading to Washington to warn Congress about the consequences of climate change.

Aspen Skiing Co. vice president Auden Schendler will be joined by Olympian snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, pro skier Chris Davenport and pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones to testify on issues involving carbon emissions on Wednesday.

According to the Aspen Daily News, Schendler says erratic weather including shorter winters and rain in the spring instead of snow has been a wake-up call for the ski industry, creating fears about the future of one of Colorado’s biggest industries.
