On this day, there will be a global ski touring initiative for the protection of the snow leopard. For every vertical meter skied uphill, Dynafit will donate one Euro cent to the non-profit organization named  “Snow Leopard Trust.” Naturally, we will provide you with the necessary equipment to gain even more meters.

1 million vertical meters -- Everybody can participate

The 2019 donation will go toward scientific research. The aim is to receive a robust assessment of the global snow leopard population. The data generated from this initiative will provide a reliable population baseline that everyone, including wildlife protectionists can reference to. This will signify a milestone in snowleopard exploration and  will have a considerable impact on future conservation efforts.

Snow Leopard Trust

The Snow Leopard Trust is a non-profit organization that works for the protection of snow leopards. To that end, it is committed not only to the protection of the endangered big cats, but also to the support of the people who live in these regions. The organization runs projects in China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Pakistan.

 

More information about the Snow Leopard Trust can be found here: www.snowleopard.org

Hope is not enough! Estimates indicate that only about 5,000 snow leopards are left in the wild - that’s 40% less than what it was 10 years ago. It’s about time to help! Be part of our Snow Leopard day to help the wildcats survive. When?
The International Snow Leopard Day takes place on March 2, 2019.

How can you contribute to the protection of snow leopards?

Let's look back at 2018 and let it inspire us!

Last year, more than 1 million meters of vert and 11,000 Euro were earned!
'Blubird and springlike temperatures accompanied us at the Snow Leopard Day 2018 that took part in seven international locations. In Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland, 1,082 ski tourers sweat for the good cause. The participants covered a total of 1,096,234 vertical meters – that´s a new record! We round up and donate 11,000 euro to the non-profit Snow Leopard Trust organization. This year, the donation goes toward a community-based herder‘s program in Pakistan.

Why snow leopards?

The snow leopard is not only Dynafit’s brand trademark; it is also an integral part of our philosophy and our products. Together with the Snow Leopard Trust we are actively committed to protecting this endangered animal. Everybody single person can contribute to this cause at the International Snow Leopard Day in March 2019 . Once again, it will all be about accumulating vertical meters for wildlife conservation.

UPDATE: A new record at Dynafit Snow Leopard Day 2019!


On March 2-3, 2019, 1,604,138 meters of vertical were accumulated at the International Snow Leopard Day. That’s a new record! In 11 countries, a total of 1,141 athletes took part in the event for a good cause. All told, they racked up over a half-million meters of vert more than last year.


For every meter of vert, DYNAFIT donates one Euro cent to the Snow Leopard Trust, which will total 16,042 Euro. Proceeds from this year’s Snow Leopard Day will go toward research into the habitat of the snow leopard, as well as toward the first global census for determining a comprehensive inventory of the population.


Congratulations to participants in North America where they significantly surpassed all other countries in terms of vert accumulated with 642,214 meters. The crown for the most vert per participant was taken by Stephan Hugenschmidt with an unbelievable 8,003 meters of vert at the Swiss Snow Leopard Day. #speedup #dynafitsquad
