Mono Nordic Cross Country Ski Club and the Town of Mono are hosting a free screening of Saving Snow on Wednesday, February 28 at 7:30 pm at the Town of Mono Municipal Office, 347209 Mono Centre Road. This is the second film created by independent filmmaker Diogo Castro Freire as part of the Adaptation Now documentary project: www.adaptationnow.com.

The film educates audiences about the impacts of climate change on winter and winter snow sports. The film begins with last year’s cancellation of the Berkebeiner Cross Country Ski Loppet in Wisconsin due to lack of snow. Here in Mono, the effects of climate change are also being felt, including by the Mono Nordic Cross Country Ski Club. Last weekend, challenging weather and snow conditions were experienced during the annual Family Ski Day.

The film concludes that we can make a difference and can advance solutions to climate change to save snow. The key is to motivate more individuals and policy makers towards action and to search for more innovative solutions. The film advances these concepts well.

At the conclusion of the film, for those who wish to stay, there will be an audience participation discussion about the film and the application of the ideas promoted by the film.
