Snowbird's Play Forever commitment.

"Climate in Utah is changing rapidly.  We need to take deliberate action now."
— Dave Fields, President and General Manager, Snowbird

Want to keep skiing? Us too.

At Snowbird, we intend to Play Forever. Through our Play Forever corporate responsibility commitment, we are committed to protecting the environment and supporting our communities. We've made great strides toward protecting the long-term viability of the mountain adventure community and the planet, but more can be done. Ultimately, the soul of our sport depends on the health of our planet, and protecting the environment is core to who we are. Climate change is real, and it is affecting the ski industry. It is imperative that we do our part to make decisions that help the environment and maintain our cold, white winters.

We believe we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to keep the places we love to ski, ride and hike around. Every day, every season, we're making measurable improvements to our operations by reducing our waste and carbon emissions, and improving air and water quality. We share our mission to Play Forever with everyone who comes more alive in the mountains or while at play, and encourage and educate others so they can make meaningful changes too.

Snowbird is an awarded industry leader, setting the standard for environmental stewardship, education and advocacy. In 2016, we welcomed the first Director of Sustainability to our management team ensuring we practice what we preach.


Buy a Pass, Plant a Tree. Play Forever

New for 2020, for each season pass product sold prior to September 30, Snowbird, in partnership with  Nokian Tyres , will facilitate the planting of 1 tree to help mitigate a portion of transportation emissions related to travel to and from the resort. This is part of POWDR's commitment to Play Forever and Nokian Tyres’ commitment to helping save the world’s winters for tomorrow’s generation.  Learn more about Nokian Tyres .
