we have a vested interest in protecting and preserving this landscape for our guests, our teams, and for future generations.
We are committed to forest health.
- We promote a healthy forest through careful management.
- Our resorts offer recreation opportunities that encourage forest diversity.
- Most of our resorts operate in partnership with the United States Forest Service and, together, we help maintain, enhance and restore healthy forest conditions.
- Our glading methods have forest health benefits.
- Our ski trails create natural wildfire prevention barriers.
- We are actively working to responsibly eradicate harmful bugs and reduce infestation, which destroys forests.
We are committed to water supply resiliency.
- All of our resorts are located in the Southwest and drought is a natural threat to our operations.
- The trail work we do every year results in increases in the water supply of our watersheds and aquifers.
- We’ve held leadership roles on the Climate Control Committee within Colorado Ski Country USA and, together, with resorts across the state, we’ve committed to:
- Help fund the Colorado Water Plan
- Explore new water storage proposals
- Support reduced water consumption incentives
- Use efficient snowmaking systems
