We donate 10% of the fees we collect to Protect Our Winters.​

Every year we choose an organization that we feel is doing innovative, effective and outstanding work in the environmental nonprofit world. 

It’s our commitment to research and support organizations that we feel are doing new work -- including new projects and outreach efforts that are really making a difference.  Do you have a cause you would like to support instead?  Let us know and we can dedicate the donation from your business to an organization of your choice

 

Currently we have chosen Protect Our Winters. 

Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones who witnessed first-hand the impact of climate change on our mountains.  After having been turned away from areas that had once been ride-able and seeing resorts closed due to lack of snow, Jeremy saw a gap between the winter sports community and the action being taken by us all to address the problem. 

 

Snow-based recreation in the United States is estimated to contribute $67 billion annually to the US economy and supports over 600,000 jobs. So when we look at the cost of inaction, it’s serious business.

 

POW represents the global snow sports community – there are 23 million of in the US alone. Protect Our Winters is the environmental center point of the global winter sports community, united towards a common goal of reducing climate change’s effects on our sports and local economies.

 

POW was founded on the idea that the collective power of the winter sports community is massive, and if we can all work together, the end result can be revolutionary. Together We Can Protect Our Winters.
