Winter is our reason for being. It’s why we do what we do. Revel in the Solstice energy and join the Alliance today!

WWA members inspire and support our work to protect access to public lands every day of the year.

Backcountry ski season is underway. Help protect the places you love by joining Winter Wildlands Alliance.

To celebrate the Solstice, Sarah Histand takes time to be quiet and reflective. She also makes a point to do something active outside. “We try to do something special, whether it’s skiing or a friend gathering. It’s not very formalized, but it’s something the mark the date,” Histand says.

“Because the fulfillment of human-powered adventure fills my cup to the brim.”

At Winter Wildlands Alliance, we are grateful to members like you who help us protect and preserve raw, vast, and quiet winter landscapes for the sake of conservation and human-powered recreation. We hope that a membership to our organization is a way to fuel your passion about snow and winter, and also public lands, conservation, and equitable recreation.

Recently, we heard from a few of our members about the reasons they seek experiences in snow-covered landscapes and why they care about conservation. Here’s what they have to say.
