Save Moose Mountain

Help us stop corporate ski resort expansion onto public lands in Minnesota! WWA, alongside grassroots group Superior Highland Backcountry, are advocating for “no action” on this proposed ski area expansion and asking the Forest Service to deny the special use permit request in entirety. All public lands users across the country can submit their comments.

Embrace the “Brr”!

The 17th annual season of the Backcountry Film Festival is coming to the outdoors near you! This season, we want everyone to “embrace the brr,” which means embracing everything we love about winter: playing in the snow, outdoor adventure, and great stories that come from long days spent in the skin track and in the backcountry.

Policy Update – September 2021

With our Policy Director out on sabbatical, our Advocacy Director fills in to discuss the latest in DC, Save Moose Mountain, and our newest Trail Break newsletter.
