A general view of Winter Olympic slope in Sestriere: A general view of Winter Olympic slope in Sestriere near Turin, Italy, Thursday, Nov. 17, 2005. Ski resorts in general are unpopular with environmentalists. Every spring, the snowy slopes turn into barren strips of earth and gravel. Global warming is now forcing skiers to move higher up the mountains in search of snow, damaging untouched habitats.
