A Farewell to Chase – thanks for keeping us true!

This week marks the end of an era for Sierra Watch: Friday is Chase Schweitzer’s last day.

He’s stepping down as Sierra Watch Engagement Director and setting out to seek his fortune beyond the granite cliffs of Tahoe’s Olympic Valley.

When we hired Chase seven years ago, we were looking for someone to “play a leadership role in Tahoe conservation” and “mobilize grassroots power to Keep Squaw True.” 

And you know what?  He did just that.

For seven years, he helped us tap our shared passion for the mountains and plug us into something much bigger than ourselves.  And it worked

There is no massive indoor waterpark in Olympic (formerly Squaw) Valley.  But our shared love the mountains remains.  Thanks, in no small part, to Chase.

Sierra Watch is looking for our next awesome field organizer.  In the meantime, here’s to Chase and all he’s done for us and for Tahoe – truly a man to match our mountains!
