POW DAY – January 13th

Dillon Green


Many souls are refreshed on powder days, the world just seems right when you're lost in that transcendental experience of skiing pow. Snow is our life, it's in our blood, which is why Discrete & Ski Utah partnered with Protect our Winters (POW) to raise overall awareness around environmental accountability. Please join Ski Utah, Protect our Winters and Discrete at both Alta Ski Area and Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort on January 13, 2016 to help raise awareness both locally and globally around climate change.  Why January 13? January 13, 2016 isn't just another winter day. Based on over 50 years of snow data, this is statistically the snowiest day in Utah!
This is truly Utah's POW day. Take action and take public transportation (UTA) or carpool to the mountains. Utah Transit Authority has generously offered complimentary ski bus service to Alta/Snowbird on January 13, 2016 and for those who drive up with four or more skiers/riders in the car will receive preferential parking.

Upon arriving at the base of either Alta or Snowbird whether by bus or carpool, POW athletes will hand out custom Discrete POW Day hats to the first 500 skiers and snowboarders who commute the environmentally conscientious way to the mountain.pow-day-hat-header-700w249h-v2
