Last week we hiked with René Estermann, CEO from the non profit organisation myclimate to the mountain hut Monte Rosa in the heart of the "Swiss Himalaya". In our eyes René is not only CEO of a organisation that is fighting the problems of climate change, he is a real pioneer when it comes to moving our society to a more sustainable model!

S T E P S: THE RIDE GREENER FILM

The Ride Greener documentary is the first climate friendly snowboard and ski movie of its kind.  It dives into the world of people whose deep connection to the mountains ties them together.  Worried about impending climate change, they are looking for an alternative way to pursue their passion in harmony with nature and experience the mountains in an ecologically sustainable way.  Instead of flying around the world in pursuit of snow, they explore the Alps at their doorstep. They travel using public transportation and climb the highest, most impressive peaks on their own before beginning their spectacular descents and jumps. Their thought-provoking comments about the effects of climate change and the fascination and freedom of snowboarding and skiing leave the viewer questioning their own approach to winter sports and everyday life.
