In this month’s policy update, we share news on permitting reform, Ambler Road in Alaska, and WWA grassroots group Wasatch Backcountry Alliance’s fight against the gondola in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Missed our fall 2022 annual member meeting? On the fence about supporting wild winters? Watch this season’s member meeting to hear about the state of the organization, learn about the policy and advocacy work ahead of us this season, and how you can be involved.

We are thrilled to award our first ever film grant to “Soñadora,” premiering at all Backcountry Film Festival screenings this tour season!
