We Are Stewards of Winter

Winter Wildlands Alliance was founded to represent backcountry skiers and human-powered recreation on America’s public lands. We are an alliance of grassroots organizers, environmental advocates, backcountry skiers and snowboarders, and individuals who are devoted to protecting, preserving, and sharing access to quiet places in the mountains.

We Know a Membership Is Worth More Than a Hat

It’s joining a far-reaching movement of backcountry skiers, riders, and snow people who are passionate about untouched lines of snow, who find meditative enjoyment on the skin track, whose best days last not from first to last chair but from sunup to sundown.

We Are Working With NASA

SnowSchool has long been a bridge for students to connect snow science and winter recreation. This year, thanks to a partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) SnowEx program, we’re excited to add a citizen science element that will give our students a role in helping scientists do the important work of measuring and monitoring the snowpack.
