Meeting Goals

NOAA's National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), in partnership with the University of Colorado's Master of the Environment Graduate Program, is hosting a seminar on drought risks and drought information needs of outdoor recreation businesses in the Intermountain West. 

In 2017 - 2018, the Rocky Mountains experienced one of the worst droughts in recent history, followed by the wettest 12-month period on record. This is the 'new normal' of extreme weather variability. This seminar will explore the effects of uncertain snowpack levels, streamflows, and warming temperatures on outdoor recreation businesses with a focus on snow- and water-based activities (skiing, fishing, rafting, etc.).

The seminar will include presentations and discussion of new and novel research on drought impacts to the industry, drought information needs, and recommendations for future actions to strengthen drought resiliency of this key sector of the economy.

Seminar topics will include:

  • Drought impacts on snow- and water-based outdoor recreation businesses
  • Vulnerability of the outdoor recreation industry
  • Industry-specific adaptation strategies
  • Drought and weather information needs of the industry 
  • How can NIDIS and partners provide support to this sector
