There are few things I love more in life than climbing up a snowy mountain to ski down. I want to ensure future generations can have the same experiences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀On Cho Oyu, I was surprised that we didn’t reach the snow line until 21,000 ft/6,400 m. As a citizen of the earth, I am concerned about climate change. Glaciers are receding at unprecedented rates. In my home state of Utah, more snow is falling as rain, and the ski season is getting shorter. I worry about more than my favorite pastime; I worry about the effects of rising sea levels, powerful hurricanes and access to drinking water (that comes from snow and glaciers). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀It is imperative that we vote for folks who will take action on climate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀To help inform your voting decisions, check out the @pow_action_fund #VoterGuideBook via the link below or in my profile:
