Save Winter For All

We recognize that the chance to find sport, adventure, and beauty in winter has not been equally shared. If we’re going to work as one to Save Winter, we need to see this as a profound opportunity to make the future better than the past, and to reflect on all the ways that we can turn our shared purpose into a real chance to open doors to true inclusion. In that spirit we will do all we can to amplify the voices of everyone who chooses to Save Winter. Please join us alongside these and other organizations to take action against climate change:
