Welcome to the POW Action Fund, where we’ll give you the beta on what’s happening at the intersection of politics and climate.


In a year where taking action on climate is of paramount importance, we’ve chosen to embrace action over apathy. We are turning our passion into purpose and jumping into the political fray.

We’re making it easy to register, pledge, and encourage your friends to vote. We even have a cheat sheet with our recommendations on voting in the midterms.

The POW Action Fund is working to make action on climate a top policy priority for the outdoor sports community.

Our Mission:

The Protect Our Winters Action Fund (POW AF) works to make action on climate change a top policy priority for the outdoor sports community.

All Outdoor People Can be Climate Advocates

Truth: Climate change threatens the future of the snow sports industry and the communities that depend on winter to power mountain economies. It threatens outdoor enthusiasts who recreate in our mountains, rivers, forests and public lands in every season. Which is to say, climate change affects us everywhere we go. While the impacts of climate change stretch far beyond the recreation economy, these impacts deeply resonate with those of us who love the outdoors.

By illustrating the unmistakable relationship between climate and the outdoors––the very element that brings us all together––the POW Action Fund turns the outdoor community’s shared love of wild places into the political will needed to drive positive action on climate change.

Training and Tools

We get it. Talking about climate change is hard. That’s why we’re doing the homework for you and laying out all of the easy-to-understand details you need to feel confident talking about climate change. Whether you’re chatting with your buddy on the chairlift or your uncle at Thanksgiving, we’ll have you covered.

While you’re crushing the singletrack, we’ll be busy breaking down the policy and the political platforms of emerging candidates. When you get back, we’ll lay out the information, and the steps you can take to act. Taking action on climate should be easy. It’s our job to help.

We believe engaging in political action should be simple enough to do anywhere––even in the lift line. We’ll give you the tools and inspiration you need to turn your passion into purpose and help your friends do the same.

Electing Climate Champions

POW Action Fund not only works to support elected officials who will take legitimate action on climate, we also work to identify those who deny the science and work against climate solutions and hold them accountable. This is about a stable climate, not special interests’ short-term gains.

Whether we’re lobbying for climate change policy on Capitol Hill or endorsing climate-friendly candidates, we’ve made it our mission to connect you––the skier, snowboarder, hiker, biker, runner, fisher––with information needed to make educated decisions to support the climate champions and the policies that are critical to your area.



Our sister organization, Protect Our Winters is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that turns passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates. POW leads a community of athletes, thought pioneers and forward-thinking business leaders to affect systemic political solutions to climate change.
