The operator Ski Independence is to work with the environmental pressure group, Protect Our Winters.




POW is hoping to help mobilise the snowsports world in the fight against climate change.

Protect Our Winters UK is a charity formed to educate and support UK outdoor sports communities to mobilise and take positive action on climate change, starting with snowsports.

It engages individuals and organisations through their snowsports livelihoods and passions.

It aims to educate them on the risks of climate change and support them to take effective action.

"Ski Independence has a responsibility as a business to endeavour to safeguard the environments that it, its customers and partners enjoy and rely on," said a spokeman for Ski Independence, Roger Ainger.

"Ski Independence is delighted to support POW UK in its mission to mobilise the snow sports and outdoor communities to take positive action on climate change and encourage best practice in our daily lives," added Ainger.
