Partners for climate change.
Snowbird works closely with partners to fight for climate change and environmental sustainability, taking an active role in educating the community on how they can make a positive difference.
From the Ski Hill to Capitol Hill
Snowbird is a Protect Our Winters (POW) Resort Partner , using our corporate weight to help influence climate policy. We've joined POW and other industry leaders on Capitol Hill to tell congress that in order to save jobs, we must save snow.
Snowbird was one of the initial businesses to sign on to the Low-Carbon USA commitment , committing to address climate change as a business.
Snowbird has partnered with Breathe Utah to educate the Snowbird community on legislative issues around air quality in Utah and provide actionable items to affect policy in the state.
Snowbird is proud to be amongst the inaugural leader for Path to Positive Utah, seeking to engage and support a diverse group of Utah leaders addressing climate change.
In December 2005, Snowbird became the first ski resort to partner with the National Forest Foundation. Snowbird and NFF continue to raise and provide funds locally for conservation projects within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
Snowbird has partnered with Cottonwood Canyons Foundation (CCF) on annual invasive weed pulls and wildflower tours.
Snowbird continues to support CCF after successfully helping to launch this local non-profit focused on graffiti removal, trail erosion prevention, noxious week removal and education.
Snowbird initiated our first Green Week in 2017, finding ways to educate and involve our community on watersheds, waste reduction, air quality and plants.
Snowbird developed environmental education outreach programs that have touched the lives of thousands including the Disabled Skier/Wilderness Experience, Barrier Free Nature Trail, Hawk Watch, Stargazer, Discover Your Forest, Jr. Ranger Program and Wildflower Festival.
Snowbird has enhanced its network of barrier-free nature trails, increased environmental education efforts, added interpretive signs around the resort, doubled its adopt-a-highway commitment and introduced new summer hiking/activity guides which emphasize the public’s environmental stewardship.
Snowbird has partnered with the University of Utah to initiate an Environmental Program Internship.
