To help SnowSchool educators prepare for teaching so many diverse students we annually provide on-snow field workshops and regional training opportunities. And this year we’ve broadened these efforts...
At midnight on Friday, March 23rd, Taylor Schefstrom and Hallie Holland (aka the Wild Winter Women) took on the Grand Traverse to benefit Winter Wildlands Allianceskiing 40 miles through the night from Crested Butte to Aspen, Colorado.
Our policy director ducked out of the office for a bit this spring to volunteer with The Wolverine Foundation on a ski expedition in Mongolia. She was part of a crew tracking wolverines and other wildlife through hundreds of miles of recently protected backcountry. Check out the trip report! ... See MoreSee Less
Remember how Utah led the charge to roll back protections for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments? Now Governor Herbert has his eye on National Forests. #saveroadless ... See MoreSee Less
Utah has incredible backcountry skiing, most of which is within areas protected by the Roadless Rule. Right now Utah is trying to convince the US Department of Agriculture and the Forest Service to remove these protections. We're working with Wasatch Backcountry Alliance and Outdoor Alliance to push back and defend the Roadless Rule in Utah and we need your help. Take a minute to sign this petition, and maybe even a few more to add your own thoughts. ... See MoreSee Less
OK, we've been talking about this Roadless Rule exception thing that Governor Herbert initiated over the last few months and now it's time for action! The Guv has submitted a petition to the Secretary of Agriculture (which oversees the US Forest Service) to exempt Utah from this 2001 rule that has preserved forested lands controversy-free under the guise of state-sponsored fire suppression, which is unrealistic at best and an outright lie at worst.
Now you can act! Our friends at the Outdoor Alliance have a blog post with more details and a petition that you can sign that will be delivered to Sec. Perdue soon. We worked with the OA to develop the map of the three-quarters of a million acres of skiable terrain in Utah that would be affected by this, and the OA a strong voice in DC (they were big drivers of the big lands package bill that was passed earlier this year). Take a few minutes to sign this petition, and even a few more to add your own thoughts.
