|In the U.S., 60% of all alpine ski areas are on National Forests.|
A signature partnership between the National Forest Foundation and the ski industry, the Ski
Conservation Fund gives visitors and guests the opportunity to contribute small donations at
participating businesses. The National Forest Foundation matches every $10 contributed with an
additional $5, then invests the funds in projects on the neighboring National Forest. There are
currently Ski Conservation Fund programs on 11 National Forests across the U.S., where projects
have helped keep trails open, reduce invasive species, and rehabilitate overused recreation
areas…all while engaging more than 7,000 volunteers in hands-on projects.
