The State of the Mountains Report takes a unique approach at pulling back the veil on climate change. In this report, twelve of Canada’s most well-known mountaineers and guides provide their observations and anecdotes about changes they have witnessed in the mountain environment. A select group of scientists then respond to the observations of those mountaineers. Do the mountaineers’ stories line up with scientific research to this point? The end goal was not to produce a scientific paper, but rather a resource that any person who cares about the mountains can understand.
