POW Presents, Hill to Hill, New Virtual Reality Experience
At first glance, climbing a 50-degree couloir, clicking into skis and arcing turns down an avalanche-prone slope and speaking with our representatives on climate change seem vastly different. They aren’t. Both require passion and a bit of practice. Both require setting aside fear and creating a vision through definitive action.
In partnership with The North Face and Duct Tape Then Beer, POW presents a new virtual reality experience that follows athletes Kit DesLauriers and Brody Leven up the Terminal Cancer Couloir in Nevada, and then to D.C., where they will take their concerns about climate change’s impacts on our lands, our communities and our world to Capitol Hill.
You’ll follow along turn by turn and step by step into the halls of Congress, feeling the power of a mountain top’s exposure and the tingling of nerves that comes from gathering your thoughts and speaking up for what you believe in.
Interested in seeing the film? Protect Our Winters will be showing the film in key locations this fall to get people stoked for winter and the midterm elections. Check back to this page for updated events.
