I go to high school in Seattle and all year for most of my projects all year i have focused on this global warming and climate change. When I told my english teacher that I wanted to focus on the topic again for my final project he asked why I was passionate about it and I told him that it was because of skiing. After talking to him he made me question the impacts of transportation to the mountains. I thought about the impacts that it has on the diversity of the sport and the affect that thousands of people driving hours to the mountains can have on the environment.
Seattle has a local program called transit to trails that takes people from the city to popular hiking destinations outside the city via a vanpool system. For my project I am trying to convince them to use this program in the winter to transport people to the mountains.
If you guys can let me know if any of your cities do anything like this that would be great. Also if you have any opinions or other ideas on how to solve the problem you would do a lot to help me out.
