Park City Mountain Resort (where I work), and it’s parent company POWDR have made a serious commitment to environmental issues over the past several years as our leadership has taken a firm stand that we must do what we can to help slow the pace of climate change. Personally I think it’s vital for us to do so, but also it part because our business is dependent upon the weather on so many levels.

This morning, myself and many of my fellow employees at the Resort, helped the Park City Foundation put on a photo shoot called “Where’s the Snow?” for which we had over 200 people lined up at the top of Payday Lift at 8200 feet, to show where the predicted snow level will be in the year 2050 if we don’t change our current rate of carbon emissions. This photo shoot was held in preparation of a second, “Save our Snow” meeting that will be held in another month, on September 30, 2009 – check out the 2007 Save our Snow climate change report for a preview of what SOS II will present.

I was amazed that well over 200 people showed up by about 7:30am (on a Saturday!) for the shoot. It’s super encouraging to see so many engaged people in our home town. Here are some “behind the scenes” shots I took, hope to see you at Save our Snow II in another month!
