Resorting to Madness: Taking Back Our Mountain Communities Now Streaming for Free Real Time Viewing


The Mountain Rider's Alliance recently posted about Resorting to Madness, Taking Back Our Mountain Communities, which is a source of great inspiration for MRA and anyone concerned with sustainability and the ski/snowboard industry. The documentary, released in 2007, addresses the impacts of the modern ski resort industry on mountain communities and environments. Footage and interviews from dozens of ski areas, experts and concerned community members throughout North America is included. Resorting to Madness reveals the negative side of an otherwise glamorous sport and offers up suggestions to protect and maintain mountain environments and communities.
Along with Hal Clifford’s Downhill Slide, Why the Corporate Ski Industry is Bad for Skiing, Ski Towns and the Environment and Jeremy Evans’ In Search of Powder:A Story of America’s Disappearing Ski Bum, one of MRA’s primary goals is to create solutions for the problems discussed in all three journalistic masterpieces.
