Mountain Clean Up
June 15, 2017
The U.S. Forest Service and Vail Mountain invite community volunteers to the annual mountain clean-up, scheduled for Thursday, June 15. Volunteers will be provided a barbecue lunch at Mid-Vail, compliments of Vail Resorts.
On clean-up day, all volunteers should meet at the base of the Gondola One in Vail Village by 9 a.m. with their own work gloves, water, sun block, hat, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes and clothing for inclement weather. Volunteers will be transported up the mountain at 9 a.m. via Gondola One, provided with trash bags and transported to clean-up sites. In the event of severe weather, a decision will be made the morning of the clean-up to either continue with the event or postpone.
Beginning at noon, the Vail Mountain dining staff will host a complimentary barbecue at Mid-Vail for all volunteers. After lunch, volunteers will meet again to continue cleaning and hike down to the base area on assigned trails. Those who choose not to walk down the mountain may download the gondola.
All volunteers will need to complete and sign a liability release form and bring it with them on the day of mountain cleanup in order to participate. Liability releases are available online here.
