Winter as we know it is under serious threat from climate change. It is time for us all to step up and take responsibility to save a season that fuels our passions but is also the foundation for our livelihoods, our jobs and the economic vitality of our mountain regions.
POW France unites the winter sports community to combat climate change and amplify the voice of all of us who love and depend on snow. We are part of the international Protect Our Winters movement and cooperate with our sister organisations in the USA, Austria, Finland and Norway.
“POW’s mission is to unite and actively engage the global snow sports community to lead the fight against climate change.”
POW Riders Alliance is a community of professional winter sports athletes committed to environmental leadership. As high profile sports men and women concerned about climate change, these athletes can inspire and impact our community with incredible effectiveness through education, activism and leading by example. Our priority is to give them a platform to do so.
