Snowbasin Resort Mission Statement:
Our mission is fostering environmental stewardship and sustainability
We feel strongly that we have put our best foot forward in this sustainability initiative, and know we are setting the appropriate bedrock standards to build on for future growth with less dependence on many resources and consumables. With your help, we were able to meet our diversion rate goal.
Over 3 years, Snowbasin Resort has diverted 230 tons of material out of the waste stream into recycling commodities while our energy reduction initiatives have saved the resort 2.8 Million kWh which are continuing to be invested back into the resort.
Snowbasin has recycled 56% of waste through the beginning of 2019, totally 61,000 pounds. This summer we plan to increase that rate to 75% utilizing a new local food waste digester.
Snowbasin Resort is committed to protecting our playground through environmental stewardship and sustainability. We've altered many of our operations to fit a more sustainable goal with programs centered around:
• Energy-Efficient Snowmaking
• Recycling, Composting & Reducing Waste
• Eliminating Unnecessary Plastics, like Straws, Throughout the Resort
• Motion-Censored Lights Within Buildings
• Community Supported Agriculture, Food Drives, Clean-Ups, and More.
Help Sustain Snowbasin by Using Recycling Receptacles Located Throughout Our Resort and Parking Lots
We are always looking for ways to improve: Recently, Snowbasin Resort has entered into a letter of intent agreement with the Wasatch Resource Recovery Center to have all compostable materials hauled off site to be deposited into the first in anaerobic digester in Utah that will create biogas to fuel thousands of Utah homes as well as create organic fertilizer that Snowbasin will use in its gardens and lawns. Snowbasin has also partnered with Qnergy in Ogden, Utah to do a test demo of the Qnergy ‘Smart Boiler’ that creates electricity while it heats water. The electrical energy of which gets used immediately by general resort operations, further reducing the need for electrical transmission from coal operated power plants.
How you can help: Please use reusable cups, containers, Camelbacks, etc. We will be selling a very inexpensive collapsible option in dining areas and many other brands and varieties are always available for purchase in the Grizzly Center. We hope that you will cooperate with us while we make this very important change that’s beneficial to not only our business but to our natural environment that we all love and admire. Since the inception of the Sustainability Initiative in February of 2013, we have made many, many important strides in overall reduction and conservation of resources and waste.
