Colorado Skiers: Powder, Not Power Plants


As the ski season opens, more than 115 snow and mountain supporters across the country have signed letters in support of bold action by the Environmental Protection Agency to curb power plant emissions.

Supporters who signed the letter include:

  • businesses
  • professional winter sports athletes
  • local governments
  • organizations 

Those letters which support of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, were delivered to the EPA at a media event. Supporters made the announcement on the sidewalk in front of the Regional EPA building in Denver together with skiers and snowboarders in their snow gear, waiving signs of support over a pile of melting snow. 

Snowriders International’s organized the campaign, Powder, Not Power Plants, calling for carbon pollution cuts on power plants.
