Now that I've read the article more thoroughly:
Published in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life, a team of Korean researchers, conducted a cross-sectional survey of 279 visitors in three major ski resorts in South Korea to measure their levels of happiness and satisfaction
This study appears to be centered on how skiing affects Koreans. I believe we need similar studies for various other regions. I hereby volunteer to disclose my data for Stowe, Vermont.
I'm a whole lot happier when I'm at Stowe as opposed to when I'm at work, wishing I was at Stowe.
I will keep data for the rest of the winter on this important topic, as the results need to include a variety of snow and weather conditions.
