The second installment in the web series “The Revelstoke Diaries” features Revelstoke locals and professional skiers Greg Hill and Izzy Lynch.

Both longtime residents of Revelstoke, Hill and Lynch have a deep passion for skiing and protecting the environment.

Media company Holmlands spent a day with them in the Revelstoke hinterland, learning more about skiing, the Revelstoke community and how these two are doing positive things against climate change.

The two athletes skin their way through a forest of snow-covered fir trees deep in the Revelstoke wilderness, casually chatting about electric cars and cutting down fossil fuels – anything that helps transform the planet and the mountains that many of us call home.
