Saving Winter

Randall Osterhuber at The Central Sierra Snow Laboratory

Snow scientists say our ski seasons are getting warmer, wetter, and less snowy. The good news? An opportunity to provoke change.

Randall Osterhuber is standing chest-deep in a snow pit of his own digging. When he crouches down to take a snow sample, he disappears completely.

“Our precipitation is below average, but not dramatically,” he tells me from within his pit. He cuts a chunk of snow with a metal edge and dips down again, now shouting from below the surface. “Our snow depth is about 50 percent of average for today’s date and snowfall is about 65 percent of average for the year.”

Drive and ride green to keep our slopes white with CLIF BAR's new eco-ski travel site

Your base layers? Organic cotton. Your water bottle? Reusable and BPA-free. Even your skis are made with sustainable bamboo cores.

Yes, once you're on the slopes you ski a mean green streak. Unfortunately, driving to the mountain burns fossil fuels and gives you serious eco-guilt.
