    You can rag on pro skiers all you want but some have raised awareness of climate change to never before seen levels. I've been told this is a great accomplishment for mankind.

    The man has a very dull ace to grind, and such a finely-honed indignation that he takes endless delight in listening to as it echoes over the lofty mountains if the inner tubes. Pure as the driven snow, all his motives: can we elect him to some worthy position?

    Does this work? I don't hate CG, she hung with Liz Daley who is one of my favorite people I haven't met. We can pretend I snapped it without them knowing.

    Pretty sure Rage Against the Machine had bigger fish to fry with that one. Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses.

    Caroline Gleich Harrassment Story

    Her climb of Everest was not for the environment but for womenís equality in summiting 8000m Peaks. Did it tip the scales? Is Everest now flooded with females?

    Somewhere there’s a 12 year-old who thinks working on solving global warming is a worthy goal because cool people like Jeremy Jones and Caroline Gleich are into it. Maybe that kid goes to engineering school and makes a major contribution to the real behind-the-scenes tech work.

    Is that so hard to imagine?

    Maybe it’s part of a longer slower change we might better appreciate in the fullness of time. I think history is full of these moments where you might not have seen instant change, but decades later you talk to people who say “I saw that and it changed my point of view”
    Maybe some girls see this and think “yeah, I can be a mountaineer” and 10 years from now you’ll hear them talking about how Caroline showed them thry could do it.

    This whole point of view that either the world instantaneously, demonstrably changed right now or the thing was hypocritical and worthless is a false dichotomy rooted in a short-sighted point of view.

    Most instagram posts form the young 20 year olds are TLDR material. It's kind of like they think that their lives are so darn important that they should write half a novel every other day. That's ok, they're young. I just keep swiping.

    I've been managing the young 20 something year olds the last few months doing conservation/trail work and it's taken me a little bit to figure em out. Their really good kids, just a different generation and it's taken some adjustment for me. You definitely do see the affects of the helicopter parenting and participation awards tho!

    Most of the expeditions to raise awareness or for this or that cause kind of stink like bullshit to me, it's just an excuse to do a self serving activity but make yourself look more "woke" or whatever. Maybe it makes their sponsors happy but it still is bullshit. If I were one of them and could score some free gear and trips I'd probably do the same though .

    There is a lot of truth in this. Lots of women, POC, queer folk, etc talk about never seeing themselves included in the outdoors so it makes them hesitant to participate. More diversity is good, and that comes from more people feeling represented.

    Making sponsors happy so you can continue to do the things you want to do seems like a great business model to me.

    Are you saying her target market isn't 40-something white, jaded misogynist skier men who are completely set in their thinking?

    I also sense a strong whiff of BS coming from her posts, but you are right, she probably speaks to a whole younger group really well.

    Can you shorten this into a tl;dr appropriate for my tramp stamp?

    If you ever find yourself in Denver or skiing Loveland, beers/tickets on me.
