Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that a BIG election is coming this November. Considering that the outdoor community is comprised of 50 million eligible voters, Protect Our Winters wants to make sure that everyone heads to the polls to make their voices heard. Step one simply means pledging to vote, however, to make things a bit more fun POW is making a competition of it.
To up the ante, POW has made four different groups—skiing, snowboarding, climbing, and trail— and wants to see which sport can pledge the most voters. Each discipline is being led by a pro athlete, and right now Nick Russell and his squad of snowboarders are kicking everyone’s butt. Skiers, climbers, and trail runners are you going to just sit back and let that happen? We hope not. Follow the directions below to get yourself and your community involved.
