In Switzerland, entire regions live from snow; for example, through tourism or winter sports. But this valuable resource is becoming scarce. According to researchers, the reason for this is climate change. As part of the “SRF HE!MATLAND” format, the documentary series “White Gold” follows five people with a special connection to snow. In three episodes, they show how global warming is breaking up decades-old structures and what direct consequences this has in their daily lives.
