Love the Mountains. Ride the Snow. Reduce your Carbon Footprint.
I fell in love with winter the first time I went sledding as a kid. I have loved snow sports since the first time my father took me skiing at a 300 vertical foot 'mountain' in the midwest. I moved to the Rocky Mountains in the 1990's and that was one of the best decisions I've ever made. In short, I love snowy mountains and I've grown to hate climate change.
I've decided to do everything I can to reduce my own contribution to climate change and global warming. I've learned a lot in the past few years about CO2 emissions and reducing my carbon footprint. It's been an eye opening experience for me and I'd like to share some of what I've learned.
I'm working to educate and encourage other skiers and snowboarders to take action against climate change. While the problem of global warming is vast, so are the numbers of snow skiers and boarders. By reducing our own carbon footprints and encouraging others to reduce CO2 emissions our influence will be great.
Take the Snow Code to heart and let's do everything we can to slow down climate change and save snow-covered mountains everywhere.
