"I've never been one to shy away from working hard for my turns, but the sad reality is we are having to work harder for those turns each year. Due to climate change, the first turns of the season are coming later and the last turns of the year are coming earlier.⁠

And really, it's a privilege to say that the shortening New England ski season is my main climate change concern. Increased wildfires (see Caldor Fire), extreme weather events (see Hurricane Ida), drought (see California), and more are affecting people's livelihood around the country and the world on a now daily basis."⁠

Best of luck to @thatdakotajones as he runs 100 miles at @rrr_steamboat this weekend with the goal of raising $6K for @footprintsrunning.⁠

"I'm raising money so we can fight climate change and preserve the wild places we love. Montana only has a few short months of running in high country and it was painful to miss several weeks this year due to poor air quality."⁠

@footprintsrunning is a training camp integrating athletic pursuits and environmental problem solving to promote project based positive change. We personally can't imagine a radder mission. ⁠

With 20,500ft of ascent in store for his weekend, let's wish @thatdakotajones luck in the comments below! 🎉⁠

Recently, Alliance Member, river guide and Montana resident @outsidehilary shared some insights from a recently published @natgeo article on the impacts of fishing due to climate change. The cliff notes version is that changes are happening to our river's ecosystems that could have a major impact on the fishing community. See what Hilary has to say below 👇🏽 and head to our link in bio to access the article. ⁠

"Climate change promotes reduced water flows that likely permit the introduced rainbow trout to spread further upriver, indiscriminately. There they hybridize more often with the native fish, creating their less-fit offspring. ▪️ By century's end, salmonflies are expected to disappear from nearly one-quarter the length of the Madison River’s main stem."
