" Climate in Utah is changing rapidly. We need to take deliberate action now. "
— Dave Fields, President and General Manager
Snowbird's Play Forever initiative recognizes that the health of both our environment and local community is vital to the future of our mountain and the sports we love. That's why Snowbird is taking real action. By challenging our employees and guests to do their part, we intend to make a difference. From internal changes, organizing clean-ups, forging new partnerships, supporting local organizations, increasing education and more, there is work to be done.

Every day, every season, Snowbird is 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 hope to 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.
Through our Play Forever commitment, Snowbird holistically invests in environmental sustainability projects, participates in scientific research, and proactively advocates for policy change to help create a more resilient world.
Snowbird supports our communities through financial and in-kind contributions. We also prioritize direct engagement activities within our local community and around our interconnected world.
