As skiers, protecting the mountain environment where we play is an integral part of who are we. And as a ski industry business, it s our responsibility to do our part to keep our mountain playgrounds as undisturbed as possible.
In October 2013, Flylow officially joined the Conservation Alliance, an organization of outdoor industry businesses that supports grassroots environmental organizations and their efforts to protect wild places.As a skier and a business owner, it s critical that that we do our part to keep our landscape protected and allow recreational users to continue to enjoy the land around us, says Flylow co-founder and president Dan Abrams. Backcountry ski terrain feels like a prized possession that we need to protect and here at Flylow, we re honored to be a part of the Conservation Alliance, which aims to do exactly that. Funds from the Conservation Alliance, which was first established in 1989, have contributed around $12 million to help to protect rivers, trails, wildlands and climbing areas throughout North America. According to the Conservation Alliance, those financial contributions have helped save more than 42 million acres of wildlands, protect 2,748 miles of rivers, stop or remove 25 dams, designate five marine reserves, and purchase nine climbing areas.
