Winter Wildlands Alliance is a founding member of Outdoor Alliance, a coalition dedicated to promoting and protecting the human powered outdoor recreation experience by uniting the voices of backcountry skiers and snowshoers with thousands of paddlers, mountain bikers and climbers to conserve America’s public lands.
The human powered outdoor recreation community has a direct and intensely personal interest in the conservation of our public lands. We are often the first to notice—and care—when something is wrong in our outdoor landscapes, and we are highly motivated to protect these places and the experiences they offer. Outdoor Alliance unites this community in order to protect our public lands and ensure that they are managed in a way that embraces the human powered experience. In doing so, we are building and nurturing a conservation constituency for the 21st century.
Founded in 2005, Outdoor Alliance is a non-profit coalition of Winter Wildlands and seven other national human-powered membership organizations: Access Fund, the American Alpine Club, American Canoe Association, American Whitewater, the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), the Mazamas, and the Mountaineers. These five organizations have a collective membership of approximately 100,000 individuals and a national network of 1,100 local clubs.
The Eldorado National Forest Draft Winter Travel Plan proposes to reverse historic protections and open traditionally non-motorized areas to snowmobile use. Let’s not let this happen. Public comments are due August 6!
