High-Country Heroes

NEMO ambassador and Global Cooling Consultant, Alison Gannett, wants to show you how you can contribute to global cooling. She's a tireless advocate for environmental education (as well as a world champion freeskier and pretty crazy mountain biker) and is one of the few who really walks the walk (or bikes the bike). If you haven't caught one of her slideshows, put it on your list. You'll see amazing footage of her rippin' big lines from movies by Warren Miller and Teton Gravity Research, all while learning easy ways you can make an impact.

This month’s Ski Magazine has a feature titled High-Country Heroes, highlighting 11 ski town locals and organizations that are making a difference in the world. While Alison definitely steals the show, others featured are Lynsey Dyer, one of Powder’s Top 15 Skiers in the Reader Poll 2009 and co-founder of the non-profit, SheJumps and Cheryl Jensen who collects old ski resort uniforms to donate to those in need and coordinates ski trips to Vail for veterans returning from war.
