Environment

Vail’s ongoing efforts to offset and reduce energy usage continue to set the bar for environmental stewardship throughout the travel industry.

 

Vail Resorts created Echo to nurture and enliven social responsibility in our company and to connect stakeholders in a new way to the diverse and growing elements that make up our efforts.  Learn More

 

Alternative Energy – Solar Power

Harnessing the resort’s 300 days of sunshine, the environmental team installed 42 200-watt solar panels on the roof of Bailey's restaurant at Adventure Ridge over the summer, creating an 8.4 kilowatt system that will produce enough energy to power the entire building and the excess electricity will light other facilities at Eagle's Nest. This project is the latest among a number of ongoing initiatives, which are intended to reduce and/or offset energy use at the resort.

Recycling

Vail has the largest ski area recycling program in the world, recycling or reusing more than 70 percent of the material on the mountain including cardboard, aluminum, glass and even chairlifts and mechanical parts.

Water Efficiency

Did you know that the drinking water on Vail Mountain is from springs located on the mountain? Our Mountain Services crew has taken a strong stance on water conservation. They have either replaced or retrofit old fixtures (from faucets to toilets to urinals) to more efficient "low" flow fixtures. This has led to a 27% reduction in drinking water usage on Vail Mountain in four years.

Commitment to Nature

As stewards of our public lands, the resort also implements springtime terrain closures in the Back Bowls for elk calving. And while tough to spot, Vail installed bat boxes around the mountain, encouraging insectivores to feast on mosquitoes in a natural means. Vail’s free "bat housing" is full of small, winged residents and some use them as a second “vacation home”. These efforts, along with company-wide initiatives such as Appetite for Life, Use Less, Do More, demonstrate a commitment to continuing to act good stewards of the environment.

Pine Beetles

The mountain pine beetle is affecting the western region of the United States, including Colorado. The beetle is part of nature's eco-cycle, and we typically see its effects every 20 to 30 years. Pine beetles attack older lodgepole pines, which are prevalent in the White River National Forest and other parts of Colorado, killing the trees and turning them brown. Forest management practices are not able to prevent this act of nature. This natural cycle will provide a new and different regenerated forest in the future.
