The western state of Utah has a particularly well-deserved reputation for its 'world class' skiing and snowboarding landscapes. Mountain resorts like Alta , Snowbird , Deer Valley , and Sundance offer amazing powder conditions unlike most other states due to the dry desert air and steep mountains that capture storms that typically dump volumes of deep, dry snow. The Utah industry association, Ski Utah , has now partnered with Protect Our Winters to show solidarity from its industry members. Their concerns about climate change were recognized recently by the Salt Lake Tribune that weighed in on the winter sports situation. The State's governor was also asked to add his voice to the diverse calls of climate change concerns.
Protect Our Winters, Ski Utah, and many others have recognized the current and growing impacts of a changing climate and the "new normal" is having already. Their actions are important but they need all the help they can muster. Join the effort.
