About Protect Our Winters Canada
Protect Our Winters Canada is a passionate community of enthusiasts, professional athletes and industry brands uniting the outdoor community to address climate change. We believe our love of adventure in nature, demands our participation in the fight to save and protect it.
Protect Our Winters was formed in 2007, by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones. He found that more and more resorts he’d always counted on for good riding were closed due to lack of snow. Something was clearly going on. He felt the need to act. But organizations focused on mobilizing the snowsports community on climate didn’t exist—there was a gap between the impacts that climate change was already having on our mountains, and any organized action being taken to address it. And so he founded Protect Our Winters.
Since then, the movement has grown to include the wider outdoor sports community. Their playgrounds and livelihoods also depend on healthy winters. Protect Our Winters has grown from a kernel of an idea into a worldwide network of over 130,000 supporters – a social movement on climate, designed to activate a passionate community and create the will for meaningful climate action across the globe.
Ecologyst is a sustainable clothing brand that originated in Victoria, in 2002 as Sitka and has now grown more permanent roots in Whistler. We believe nature has the power to leave people better, and we have the power to leave nature better. So, partnering with Protect Our Winters here in Whistler is a natural progression to conserving what we love and raising awareness for climate change. We are committed to protecting what unites us; a deep connection to nature.
