Here we go! We have officially launched our fundraising campaign!
Snow Lovers is a pending nonprofit to Save Winter for Future Generations! Come join us if you want to make a real difference when it comes to global climate change and the impact it has had on our winters. We are a team of passionate and experienced people from around the world who depend on winter.
Our plan as an organization is to act as the WAKE-UP call for those who benefit from snow.
—Provide actionable skills, education, and awareness to snow enthusiasts about how to track and reduce their personal carbon footprints and share with others
—Train, map, and recognize snow competitions and events, snow brands, and ski resorts that want to move towards goals for 100% renewable energy by 2030, in accordance with the Paris Agreement
—Catalyze the cause through media, social networking, and presentations that we must act now and can’t wait one more winter for our snow season to drastically continue to change
—Challenge those who think increased development is the solution to keeping ski resorts in business
—Work with snowboarders, skiers, Olympic athletes, First Nation people, businesses, and ski resorts who believe that we have no time to lose and must take responsibility for our actions to change our culture now
—Amplify the message about the importance of snowpack and winter seasons for healthy year-round ecosystems, for the health of our agriculture, clean air, and the natural balance and beauty of life on this planet!
Any funds we raise go straight to launching our nonprofit fast, during the winter of 2018. This includes:
–Green guides, videos, and presentations that provide actionable instructions people can utilize to measure, track, and share their carbon footprint journey to start on their path of reduction and a net-zero balance
–Pledge and training programs for snow brands stoked to take the steps to sustianability
–100% renewable guidance plans and training programs for ski resorts and mountain communities who are interested in meeting the requirements of shfiting from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy in accordance with the Paris Agreement by 2030
–Final nonprofit incorporation filing fees
–Website build-out as the platform for education, advocacy, and mitgation for change
–Snow Lovers energy strategists in winter industries and sports working to get the job done!
Who Will Benefit:
—Mother Earth, winter seasons, snowpack, streams, water systems, agriculture systems, healthy air, and beauty of this planet which all creatures need to survive and thrive, and which comes from healthy winter season environments
—Snow Enthusiasts who love to recreate, work, train in winter, including snowboarders, skiers, backcountry, snowshoers, hikers, bird watchers, winter Olympic athletes, First Nation people dependent on winter climates
—The Economy since the global ski industry generates up to $70 billion a year, providing jobs and keeping communities alive who are dependent on snow
We don’t want one more winter to suffer. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by March 17, 2018 in order to fast-track our efforts so far and show the world that Snow Lovers are about mitigation for urgent change, because lack of snow and extreme winter conditions do more harm than lack of a 4-season ski resort development strategy.
It’s time to change our winter culture. We are not about advocacy and influencing politicians in national capitals, but rather going straight to major influences of power: The vast population of people who love and need snow. As a collective taking action, this is the most powerful way to minimize the impacts of climate change. While the snow industry is so desperately dependent on solving the crisis to save winters for future generations, remarkably, it is one of the slowest industries that is actually doing something about it.
Snow Lovers are the Cataylsts.
Join us! Become a Snow Lover! Our planet depends on all of us~
