“Don’t trade snow for coal”

Snowbird is a well known ski resort in Utah. It has recently become embroiled in controversy because Snowbird owner and outspoken advocate for environmental sustainability, Dick Bass, is investing in Alaska’s largest proposed coal strip mine.

According to activist group Peaceful Uprising,  it will destroy the local salmon fishery and contribute to quickly advancing climate catastrophe. It says that the the coal mine is “environmentally barbaric and a glaring hypocrisy for Bass”. Peaceful Uprising is leading a campaign to boycott Snowbird, putting pressure on Bass to disinvest in the Chuitna Coal Mine.
