Become the Media

We need your help right away!!
Calling all Media Activists! Help us stop AZ Snowbowel from breaking the law!
(Don't worry if this is your first time, become the media today!)

On Dec. 24th Arizona Snowbowl started to make snow from treated sewage effluent and they are not complying with their city water contract.

We need folks with cameras to get up there right away and photograph and film the entire area to prove this wrongdoing!

Here is what the city contract says:

Provide and install sufficient signage reading "Snow made with Reclaimed Wastewater, do not eat the snow or drink melted snow" or similar warnings. Such signs shall be displayed prominently at each reuse site. Such signs shall be placed at all logical points of entry to each reuse site, at the entrance to all lakes and ponds at each reuse site, at all plumbing outlets and at all hose bibs providing Reclaimed Wastewater.

This means every ski run, every lift, every lodge, and every ticket booth, as well as at online ticket sales operations. It additionally means at all the places where they hook up the PoleCat snowmaking machines to a water supply. We need to film and photograph everything.

This campaign has been massively successful. Budding media artists and photojournalists have come together to expose the gritty truth about how a ski area is made. They have used words, blogs, photos, videos, and word of mouth to bring you the information you need to know. Not one press release was sent, no newspaper covered it, but we have reached over 40 countries on 6 continents. You truly have become the media! This section contains instructions on how to get started and tons of open source media you can use, share, and publish without any sort of attribution. All is released under an open source license and is free to use.
