Event Details

How do new generations grapple with the idea that their children may never see snow? Even in Utah, home to “the greatest snow on Earth”? In her new book Shaped by Snow, Utahn and skier Ayja Bounous explores the threats to winter and watershed by climate change, especially in her beloved local Wasatch Mountain Range. From ecological and economic to emotional and psychological perspectives, Bounous calls for action as she realizes just how deeply her personal relationships are tied to snow.

Ayja Bounous is a Utah native and avid skier. She holds an MA in Environmental Humanities from the University of Utah and bachelor’s degrees in Music and Environmental Studies from Santa Clara University. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
