Respect the Mountain campaign
The Ski Club's Respect the Mountain campaign is a safety and awareness initiative launched in 2004 as a response to the potential threat posed by climate change to winter sports. The campaign aims to raise awareness of environmental and safety issues whilst on the mountains, and fund environmental projects connected to the snowsports industry.
