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 September, Secretary Zinke advised the Trump Administration to reduce the protections on 10 of our National Monuments, including Bears Ear National Monument in Utah.  His recommendations included shrinking several monuments and opening others up to development.
