P2 for Ski Areas

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency
Project Description The National Ski Areas Association, Colorado Ski Country USA, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment presented a P2 workshop for Colorado ski areas at Keystone, CO on April 11, 2002. The workshop summarized a three year project, funded by EPA, to reduce environmental impacts in all areas of ski area operations using P2 approaches. Areas addressed at the workshop were: the sustainable slopes assessment tool, performance measurement and reporting, purchasing, food and beverage service, lodging, grounds maintenance, buildings, sustainable design, lift operations, snow-making, and vehicle maintenance. The workshop also featured presentations by environmental managers for ski areas involved in the project, including the two partners in the project--Aspen Ski Company and Arapahoe Basin--as well as Vail Resorts. EPA is also a partnering organization in the development of the National Ski Area Association environmental charter for ski areas, "Sustainable Slopes" (www.nsaa.org).
