Dolores is featured in two films, "The Greatest Snow on Earth: Utah's Skiing Story," filmed by Shawn Emery and "Spirit of Snow," filmed by Dave O'Leske. Known today as one of the country's leading ecologists, she has written several books including Sacred Land Sacred Sex; Rapture of the Deep: Concerning Deep Ecology and Celebrating Life; Deep Powder Snow: 40 Years of Ecstatic Skiing, Avalanches and Earth Wisdom; and Earth Festivals: Seasonal Celebrations for Everyone Young and Old.
