Wednesday December 12, 2018 - Email this article to a friend

The French resort has joined up with the environmental pressure group. It is the first French resort to do so. NEW

 

 

 

 

 

 

Les Menuires has become the first French resort to join the Protect Our Winters 'Resort Alliance'.

Protect Our Winters is an international association comprised of passionate winter sports fans, influencers, professional athletes and industry brands.

It aims to take advantage of social influence to create change, mobilise the outdoor sports community, to inspire and lead the charge towards positive climate action.

It was launched in 2007 by American pro snowboarder, Jeremy Jones.

"We are very proud to see a French resort, with genuine ambitions as far as climate change is concerned, join this Alliance," said the President of POW France, Thibault Liebenguth.

"Our teams are preparing to put the resort to good use, in conjunction with various scientists and athletes, to show that taking action and appealing for climate change can have a positive impact, and that it isn't too late to protect our mountain playgrounds."

PlanetSKI is a keen supporter of Protect Our Winters.

The association is now developing in Europe, supported by a community of more than 160,000 people in more than 11 countries.
