Beyond the Ski Pass: Avalanches, Water, Economics, and What a Bad Snow Year Means for Oregon

We’ve all had that conversation, fewer days of skiing, fewer storms, more pushes towards the deeper backcountry terrain, more avalanche evidence once you get there. Less and less bang for your ski pass buck. Winters in Oregon have always varied, but what is normal and what may be our new “normal” with continued effects of climate change?

Join us as we dig into what a low snow year means. Learn about its impacts on water resources, economics, outdoor recreation, and the Oregon community as climate continues to shape our winters.

Kali Abel is a glaciologist, professor, science writer, and ultra adventurer. She has traveled the world and seen firsthand the effects of climate change. Come spend an evening as she presents, "Beyond the Ski Pass," and learn ways in which you too can get involved in making a difference in the fight against climate change!
