Meet the POW Team

The Protect Our Winters Australia team are all volunteers.

We are spread across the country working day jobs in and out of the snow industry, some at sea level, some at altitude. But the common thread is, we’re all passionate about protecting winter and we all enjoy a nice pow turn.
