The mountains and winter are the ski industry’s livelihood and passion. The mountain environments in which California and Nevada ski resorts operate are essential to both our business and outdoor recreation. Ski resorts provide guests access to the mountains that many people would not otherwise experience. As an industry, our resorts are committed to supporting and investing in environmentally progressive practices in all aspects of operations in order to sustain enjoyment by future generations. The ski industry’s commitment to the environment is neither about politics nor simply about climate change, but rather about raising awareness and fostering change. California and Nevada resorts are devoted to being environmentally conscious because it is the right thing to do. We cannot be certain what our world will look like 50 or 100 years from now, but we do know that making sound decisions that balance recreation for winter enthusiasts and care for our environment will greatly increase the chances that we can enjoy winter sports for generations to come.
