According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, "virtually all scientists" agree that climate change is a direct result of human activities. Among other things, we are emitting over 10 billion metric TONS of carbon into the atmosphere every year.

As skiers, as well as inhabitants on earth, our role in the destruction of the planet is clear and simple. We rely on this planet to survive. We rely on the stability of season to ski. So, we must all be avid advocates for the protection of the planet!
