Protect Our Winters Reaches into the Southern Hemisphere


This winter, Protect Our Winters will be closer to home for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere.  As winter quickly approaches the southern hemi, POW opened satellite offices in Melbourne, Australia, Las Leñas and Bariloche, Argentina to extend their reach and understanding of the local issues in these winter climates.

"Since climate change is a global issue, it only makes sense that we have a keen understanding of issues facing the global winter sports community", said Chris Steinkamp, POW's Executive Director.  "We already have a lot of supporters from Argentina, Chile, Australia and New Zealand and we want to make sure we sincerely engage them and support local initiatives to tangibly offset climate change".

Staffed by POW supporters, these representatives will be focused on engaging the local community in the climate change discussion, developing local programs and uncovering new grant opportunities while building brand awareness for Protect Our Winters.

Protect Our Winters will continue to establish footholds in other key markets throughout the year.
