Saving Snow1

 “Across the country, people who depend on winter for their livelihood are feeling the heat. On the sidelines of skiing and snowboarding, an epic struggle to reverse rising temperatures is unfolding. Ski towns and the snow sports industry are paving the way towards a clean energy future.”

The film Saving Snow features skiers, snowmobilers, sled dog guides, and other winter sports lovers as they face the challenges of a warming climate and vanishing snow season. This documentary is able to reveal how the quickly disappearing snow season is more than a frustration from the weaning of winter activities. In many cases, the shortening of the snow season is causing a direct hit towards mountain resorts and small town businesses that depend on the snow season and winter tourism for their economic well-being. By exploring and documenting this impact, director Diogo Freire is able to shed light on how the loss of the snow season is affecting businesses and individuals, while also highlighting ways that we can continue to fight back and make a difference. Saving Snow is able to strike a perfect balance between educational awareness while also providing resources for actions that individuals can take. Within the film, Aspen Snowmass and the climate advocacy group Protect Our Winters (POW) are featured, both showcasing the positive environmental mitigation strategies that are being implemented to combat the changing climate.

Saving Snow is part of Walking Mountains Science Center’s 8th Annual Sustainable Film Series. The film will be featured on Wednesday, December 11th at The Riverwalk Theater. The Sustainable Film Series is an ongoing event that aims to raise awareness and encourage community dialogue about environmental issues affecting our world.
