Collingwood's Blue Mountain Resort lays off 1,300 workers

Collingwood's Blue Mountain Resort, a popular destination for winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding, had a notice on its web site that they are closed, but expect to reopen by January 10th.

Moreover, they had to lay off 1,300 seasonal workers, since there is no snow on the ground, and hence winter sports cannot be performed.

All this is because of the unusually warm December and January in Southern Ontario.
