Generations is a new film available for free online today, documenting the consequences of climate change from the perspective of skiers and snowboarders. The film was made by Teton Gravity Research in partnership with The North Face, Clif Bar, and Protect Our Winters (POW), and features athletes Jeremy Jones, Ingrid Backstrom, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Seth Morrison, Dash Longe, Dylan Hood, and Erik Roner.
"Generations discusses climate change through the perspectives of those for whom snowy winters have a deeper personal significance. Going beyond charts and numbers, Generations humanizes the debate on climate change by exploring the delicateness of winter and the intrinsic value of snow to people across generations and cultures."
It's a call to action for anyone who cares about snow, and recently won "Best Environmental Message" from the Backcountry Film Festival and "Best Environmental Film" at Rossland Mountain Film Festival. The 17-minute film is now available as a free HD download from iTunes and at TetonGravity.com/generations, TheNorthFace.com/generations and ProtectOurWinters.org.
