Vail Resorts launches new green website

Vail Daily staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colo. – A new website launched by Vail Resorts aims to better educate and engage guests and employees about the company’s sustainability efforts aimed at both protecting the natural resources that surround the resorts and helping to build stronger communities.

Vailresortsecho.com encompasses environmental stewardship, charitable giving and community engagement. The site provides information on the company’s goals and ideals regarding corporate stewardship, said Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer for Vail Resorts.

Vailresortsecho.com gives employees and guests a place to learn about the company’s charitable and operational programs.

The website includes:

• The company’s focus on healthy forests and clean water through its partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Forest Foundation on the Hayman Restoration Partnership, the state’s largest forest restoration project, and one of the largest public-private partnerships of its kind in the country.

• Target 10 percent – the program that aims to significantly reduce energy consumption with a stated goal of a 10 percent reduction by the end of 2010.

• Vail Resorts’ partnership with the National Forest Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the U.S. Forest Service, that has raised $1.7 million since the program’s inception in 2006 for local conservation projects.

• Information for nonprofits interested in learning more about Vail Resorts’ grant process.
