Ski Area Outreach

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Ski Areas of New York, Inc.
Project Description The Pollution Prevention (P2) Unit of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has made progress on its outreach to ski areas. Over the course of 2002, the Unit researched ski area issues, collected data, and worked with the Ski Areas of New York, Inc. (SANY) organization to establish an ad hoc advisory group of ski managers. The group is providing insight and advice on the development of practical, useable P2 outreach materials for NY ski areas.

In September 2002, the P2 Unit organized a P2 presentation at the SANY/National Ski Areas Association (NSAA)/Pennsylvania SAA Annual Trade Show. Unit staff intends to return to the trade show to display and distribute project materials that are being developed. A three pronged approach is envisioned: an employee-targeted video to complement the National Ski Areas Association's "Spotlight Video on Sustainable Slopes"; a companion guide for ski managers providing P2 tips and resources; and a P2 poster and related outreach materials geared to ski area customers to raise P2 awareness. NY Network (part of the State University of New York system) assisted DEC in the development and recording of the training video. The video is completed, and work is progressing on the development of the companion guide/checklist to supplement the information presented in the video.

The DEC has also signed on to become a Partnering Organization to the NSAA Environmental Charter, while Belleayre Mountain (the only State-run ski mountain) will become an Endorsing Ski Area.
