We’ve had a kickass winter here in the Southern Rockies, and it’s far from over. What gets me just as stoked about riding powder is knowing that the healthy snowpack translates to a more lush and vibrant spring and summer, with more water in our rivers, lakes, and streams. The cold water that results from snowpack runoff in the Spring is crucial to our rivers ecosystem and biodiversity. Native fish populations need the cold water runoff as its essential for their habitat and health. But one good winter doesn’t negate the problems climate change is creating for the American West. We’ve got an insane amount of work to do to combat the affects of a hotter climate. And that battle begins with transitioning to cleaner energy. One organization that’s leading the way in their field is @protectourwinters.
Check them out and follow their work. By mobilizing and unifying the outdoor industry, those who call on the outdoors for both work and play, we have an unique opportunity to use our voices to make change. We all love the outdoors, why not join forces to protect what we love! 🌲
