Join Protect Our Winters NZ – Be part of the solution

The Past and Future are at war. Representing the Past are those who limit progress in order to perpetuate unsustainable fossil fuel technologies. Representing the Future stand those who dare to innovate towards a new era of clean technologies and carbon neutrality.

The Past traffics in disinformation, doubt and fear. It banks on complacency to stifle innovation and emerging markets. It wields control, power and money to prop up leaders who willfully ignore science. The Future is young. It needs champions. We must work together so the Future can be bigger and stronger than the Past. POW is part of the future, we’re progressive and looking towards solutions.

You’re a part of the first generation to feel the impact of human influenced climate change, and the last generation able to do something about it. If we do nothing, nothing changes. But if we accept that we need to act, we can create a better future for all and protect our winters.

So how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time

What’s the solution to climate change? Tackling one of the biggest issues mankind has ever faced may seem like an impossible task and while there’s no perfect answer, we’re defining an actionable path towards the future.

As a collective adventure community, we have experience realising the improbable. From successful business owners and those on the top step of the podium, right down to those who have overcome their own personal challenges, POW members know that with the right approach any goal is achievable.

The enormity of the issue can at times seem overwhelming but by taking small strategic steps to improve, and by engaging with members of local and national businesses as well as government to take the same approach, together as a community we can have a huge impact on tackling climate change.

Turning Passion into Purpose

POW exists to turn your love for the outdoors into a purpose. What better purpose than to take a stand against the very thing that threatens what you love.

All outdoor people can be climate advocates. POW turns passionate outdoors people into effective climate advocates.

The science is clear. Climate change will alter both human and natural landscapes. Unchecked, the loss of powder slashes and recreational areas will be the least of our worries.


We don’t only love winter – we need it.

Join POW NZ and turn your passion into purpose!
