  • Greenhouse gas reductions and support for government policies that address climate change
  • Renewable energy procurement and energy efficiency
  • Sustainable design and construction
  • Water conservation
  • Habitat conservation, wildlife protection and weed management
  • Resource efficient transportation
  • Solid and hazardous waste reduction
  • Community activism and environmental education
  • Working with our suppliers to reduce waste and increase green product purchases
  • Influencing industry and government toward progressive environmental policies
  • Supporting the Ski Industry Environmental Charter, Sustainable Slopes and other industry programs such as “Keep Winter Cool.”
We will promote pollution prevention to meet or exceed all applicable federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations, and we will verify our performance through periodic conformance and compliance audits.

We will remain responsible stewards of our mountain environment through continuous improvement of our environmental performance, and we will continue to share information and work together in a forthright manner with our community.

We commit to maintain our position as an environmental leader in the business world and remain an outspoken proponent of environmental protection.
