Respect the Mountain
The Ski Club's Respect the Mountain campaign has gone from strength to strength over the years and is now one of the ski industry's biggest environmental and safety initiatives.
The Ski Club launched the Respect the Mountain campaign in 2004 after it was felt that the UK snowsports industry had to start addressing the fact that climate change had become a reality and the inevitable impact this would have on the snowsports industry. The Ski Club were in the perfect position to try and take the lead in raising awareness and offer information to all areas of the snowsports industry and to skiers and snowboarders.
50p from every members subscription fee is put into a fund called the Environmental Levy, this is then used to support and fund projects that help the environment.
- Raise awareness with regards to environmental and safety issues connected to snowsports
- Fund environmental projects connected to snowsports
- Offer educational information to skiers, snowboarders and the snowsports industry
