This past weekend, as an ambassador to Winter Wildlands Alliance, I headed up to Boise for the Winter Wildlands Grassroots Advocacy Conference in Boise, Idaho. The meetings, led by Spitfire Strategies’s brilliant Kristen Grimm, we learned about creating effective messaging for those issues that are at the forefront of many of our minds these days — including protecting our public lands and slowing the rapid pace of climate change.

WORKING FOR SOLUTIONS AND TAKING THE LONG VIEW
Winter Wildlands Alliance is dedicated to preserving winter wildlands and quality human-powered snowsports experiences on public lands. We represent a growing community of backcountry and Nordic skiers, splitboarders, snowshoers, climbers, climate researchers, and other human-paced winter explorers, from Maine to California to Alaska. Our members, and the members of our 40 different grassroots groups nationwide, deeply value natural winter soundscapes and the opportunity for solitude and escape afforded by the last remaining places across the American West where solitude, fundamental wildness and non-motorized experiences are preserved. From the backcountry to Washington D.C., Winter Wildlands Alliance works with land managers, elected officials, grassroots groups and other partners to pursue a balanced approach to winter recreation management for the long-term protection of the places where we play.

NATIONAL SNOWSCHOOL PROGRAM
Special Temporary Link: NAAEE Workshop Participants Click Here!
SnowSchool introduces kids to the joy of exploring our nation’s winter wildlands. A growing national education program of Winter Wildlands Alliance, SnowSchool annually engages over 33,000 participants across 65 sites. Each winter, in 16 states along the US snow-belt, K-12 students and teachers venture out on snowshoes as part of a fun and educational science-based field trip. Over 50% of participants are underserved and a majority are first time snowshoers! WWA works year-round with organizational partners nationwide to establish new SnowSchool sites each year and help bring this important experience to the communities and students that need it most.
