Park City Mountain Resort continually strives to be an environmental leader in the community. Each year as we think about improvements, we take into account how we can offset our energy uses and reduce our carbon footprint. The new lights and snowmaking systems that are in place for the 10/11 winter season are a big part of this ongoing initiative. This past year we introduced the Eco Zone, located in the Resort plaza, designed to educate our guests on what we have done as well as what you can do for climate protection, energy savings, and waste reduction.
This year we have been awarded Utah's Green Business Award for workplace initiatives by Utah Business magazine. This award was given for "practices at the workplace that engage employees and clients to act green. Companies that provide employees with an eco-friendly workplace by adopting energy efficient technologies and industry leading practicies."
Here are just a few of the highlights from Utah Business magazine's article on Park City Mountain Resort:
It is an honor to be recognized alongside these champions in environmental sustainability. I applaud Utah Business magazine for hosting a luncheon to honor these companies that was not only informative, but also inspiring.
