    Here's how it works

    The resorts listed below have all taken meaningful action to offset their carbon emissions in some way. We encourage you to send a virtual high-five to as many of them as you can for going above and beyond in the fight against climate change and helping to keep snow on our mountains.

     

     

     

    BOREAL RESORT

     (Truckee, CA)

    POWDR Corp, who owns the mountain, buys renewable energy credits to offset 100 percent of grid-supplied electricity for each of its resorts. The company also has a program targeting energy efficiency, recycling, and alternative fuels. POWDR estimates it reduced its carbon output by 998 tons in 2012.

    THANK BOREAL RESORT

     

     

    STEVENS PASS

    (Skykomish, WA)

    Stevens Pass purchases renewable energy credits to offset 100 percent of its energy from electricity and propane.

    THANK STEVENS PASS

     

     

     

    BERKSHIRE EAST

    (Charlemont, MA)

    This mountain is 100-percent powered by solar and wind energy – all generated onsite.

    THANK BERKSHIRE EAST

     

     

     

     

    PARADISKI RESORT

    (La Plagne, France)

    The resort’s lifts are 100 percent powered by clean energy.

    THANK PARADISKI RESORT

     

     

     

     

    ASPEN RESORT

    (Aspen, CO)

    The Aspen Skiing Co. purchased wind power credits from 2006 to 2008 and spends $25,000 annually on direct wind power. The company also built a 147kW solar photovoltaic system that produces 200,000 kWh of power annually.

    THANK ASPEN RESORT

     

     

     

    PARK CITY MOUNTAIN

    (Park City, UT)

    The Park City Mountain Resort purchases enough wind power to offset 100 percent of its electricity consumption. The resort estimates that these purchases have avoided the release of over 55,000 tons of carbon pollution.

    THANK PARK CITY MOUNTAIN

     

     

     

    NORTHSTAR CALIFORNIA

    (Truckee, CA)

    This resort buys wind energy to offset part of its carbon emissions.

    THANK NORTHSTAR CALIFORNIA

     

     

     

    WHISTLER BLACKCOMB

    (Whistler, BC Canada)

    This resort produces 32 gWh of electricity annually using hydropower. That’s the equivalent of powering 3000-4000 homes a year, and enough to completely power the resort. The resort has also undertaken retrofits and other energy efficiency measures that save an estimated 4.6 million kWh of electricity yearly.

    THANK WHISTLER BLACKCOMB

     

     

     

    SKIWELT

    (Austria)

    In addition to using a solar PV system that powers a lift and generates 12,000 kilowatt hours annually and sells the excess back to the grid, the resort area relies on a heat recovery system that uses waste heat to supplement the heating in many of its facilities.

    THANK SKIWELT

     

     

     

    KILLINGTON RESORT

    (Killington, VT)  

    Powdr Corp is committed to being an industry leader in environmental stewardship. In addition to the purchase of 100 percent renewable energy, Powdr Corp resorts are actively involved in environmental initiatives including energy reduction, the use of alternative fuels and recycling. These initiatives have offset Powdr Corp's carbon footprint by 92 percent.

    THANK KILLINGTON RESORT

     

     

     

    HEAVENLY MOUNTAIN

    (Lake Tahoe, CA)

    This resort buys wind energy to offset part of its carbon emissions.

    THANK HEAVENLY MOUNTAIN
