Colorado Public Lands Day at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Colorado

Colorado Public Lands Day at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Colorado

 

We love our public lands.  

They are at the heart of the outdoor recreation industry in America.  Skiers and snowboarders are constantly benefitting from this amazing shared resource - both winter and summer. Much of the land we ski on is publicly managed and protected. America's public lands keeps the mountain air fresh and preserve pristine mountain views. They are essential to our climate, clean water, and our way of life.  

Snowriders International believes in keeping our public lands public.  Our Snowriders for Public Lands campaign is working to build awareness for the important asset our public lands provide to us as skiers and as citizens. Protecting our public lands from private development is essential to the future of all outdoor recreation, as well our efforts to combat climate change and environmental degradation.

In April, President Trump signed an executive order instructing the Secretary of Interior, Ryan Zinke, to review 27 national monuments, including Bears Ear National Monument in Utah, Canyons of the Ancients in Colorado, and Basin and Range National Monument in Nevada and to consider opening them up to private development.

 

take action!

 

Dear Secretary Zinke,

We the undersigned support the continued federal protection of America's National Monuments, including Canyons of the Ancients and Bears Ear National Monuments. As skiers, snowboarders and lovers of the outdoors, we benefit constantly from our country's public land resources. The protection of our national monuments not only benefits our economy, but it preserves our economy, our natural inheritance, and our public health.
