More than 50 industry leaders convened ahead of Telluride Mountainfilm to learn how to push policy that addresses climate change. Addressing these challenges and applying them to action will be the first mission of the recently established CEO Alliance. Outdoor Industry Association, Protect Our Winters and Mountainfilm have committed to working together to that end, with the next summit convening at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2018.
