Organize a screening

Use Saving Snow to start conversations about climate change and its solutions. We encourage you to organize group screenings at home, work, school, church, libraries and other community forums. There is no community screening fee or license required. You can download a copy by purchasing the film on Vimeo and use the organizer toolkit to help you plan your event.


Following its premiere at the American Birkebeiner ski race, where filming of the documentary began, Saving Snow was released with a wave of community screenings across the country (see full list).

See how winter is warmer in your area

Climate Central has developed an interactive tool covering large swaths of the United States. In some areas the recorded warming is dramatic. Winter in the city of Burlington, Vermont, is 7°F warmer than it was in 1970, and in Minneapolis, Minnesota, it is 6°F warmer. Click on the map below to see the warming in your area.


The Economic Impact

Protect Our Winters (POW) has commissioned and released a detailed report on the economic impact of global warming on the U.S. winter sports economy. We recommend you read the executive summary and download the report.
