Save the Snow! Climate Summit

Friday, March 15, 2019
9:00 am5:00 pm
Montana Western

Please join us for an event, free and open to the public, that will focus on bringing awareness to Montana’s snowpack, and the long-term implications of a warming winter climate.

Experts will explain how lessening snowpack has effected the winter snowsport industry and the implications it has had on ranching, tourism, and forest/land/water management.

Presentations will focus on information gathered from SNOTEL and snow courses. We will look at the long-term context from tree-rings and lake sediment cores and discuss future projections of climate on water resources. Experts will also take a look at solutions for climate resilience.

Our goal is to provide expertise to local stakeholders and community members on the current snowpack and trends over the past century.
