Advocacy. Mitigation. Resilience.

Ski areas provide unparalleled outdoor recreation experiences to millions of people every year, all year round. We are committed to improving environmental performance in all aspects of our operations and managing our areas to allow for the continued enjoyment by future generations. We support this through our three pillars:

  1. Advocacy: raising the collaborative business voice of the ski industry for broadscale regulatory and legislative action
  2. Mitigation: reducing our emissions and overall footprint
  3. Resilience: working to plan for the future, protecting our people, natural places and infrastructure from climate risks
