Our snowpack in North America has already decreased by 30%, and our seasons are now 10-30 days shorter than they were 50 years ago. Our ski seasons will eventually be cut in half, then cease to exist at all. As a professional ski mountaineer and someone who’s made my deepest relationships in remote, snowy mountain ranges, I personally cannot begin to imagine a world without winters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Climate change was once a bipartisan issue. In fact, George H.W. Bush made a speech in 1988, advocating for action on climate change, and while the issue has become increasingly divisive, I believe we can come together and make a real difference in protecting our planet from the harsh realities of climate change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I'm partnering with @clifbar and @protectourwinters to promote "The Snow Party" so everyday snow sports enthusiasts (like you!) can help create change in their communities with their purchasing and voting power. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Check out the toolkit at @protectourwinters to learn how to talk to your representatives and vote with your actions, and use the hashtag #TheSnowParty to share why this is important to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀If you want to have a conversation about this in the comments, either introduce yourself with your full name or have a username with your real name and headshot.
