Christmas in July
… At least that’s what it looked like when some of the Big Green Bus team took skis and snowboards to Imogene Pass, Colorado (outside of Telluride) last week. The bussers took a much-needed break over the July 4th weekend and enjoyed the result of last winter’s record snowfall.
Big Green Bus blogger Andrew Zabel notes, however, that even the simple pleasure of skiing down a snowy slope on a sunny day is not without guilt: “… the carbon dioxide emissions from lifts, or in the case of our July adventure, an SUV, reduce the likelihood that we’ll get to enjoy a similar experience in the future. In a warmer world, mountain snowpack in the Rockies will rarely if ever last into July.”
The good news? The experience left the bussers relaxed, rejuvenated, and all the more committed to their journey in the name of alternative fuel education.
