These are not problems for future generations. They are for us to solve, here and now.
Later this month Whistler Blackcomb (in cooperation with Telus and Switchback Entertainment) will release a four part documentary series exploring the issues facing skiing and the future of the snow sports industry.
Coming this fall. A look at the next 50 years. Whistler Blackcomb takes a big picture look at the future of skiing & snowboarding in a four-part documentary series exploring climate change, backcountry access, the state of the industry, and the risks of losing kids to technology.
It’s a heavy premise, but an important conversation that needs to be had. While facts like “75% of children in the UK spend less time outdoors than prison inmates” are shocking, the flip side is also worrying: how much damage is our thirst for adventure inflicting on the environment? Things need to change. But change how? What’s best for us, and is that best for the planet?
