Recent research by in its Sustainable Travel Report 2022 found that 81% of travelers say sustainable travel is important to them

One-half say climate change has influenced them to make more sustainable travel choices.

Here’s what three US ski resorts are doing to mitigate climate change impacts and allow travelers to visit responsibly, guilt-free.


Palisades Tahoe, California

Palisades Tahoe was the first resort in North America to ban the sale of single-use plastic water bottles and has numerous water stations around the mountain and village for skiers to refill their bottles. Other initiatives include free electric car charging stations and the donation of uniform from retired staff to those in need around the world.


Deer Valley, Utah

In support of Park City’s endeavour to achieve net zero by 2030, Deer Valley has invested in alternative energy and implemented resort-wide recycling, composting and sustainable purchasing. The resort’s partnership with a nearby farm ensures food waste is composted, whilst the restaurant teams source as much produce as possible from local food purveyors to ensure the journey from farm to fork is minimal.


Steamboat, Colorado

Steamboat’s commitment to sustainability is resort-wide. It has so far pledged $500,000 to the Yampa River Fund, to ensure the river is flowing for years to come, and is dedicated to reducing food waste by donating items to a local charity. In line with Steamboat’s $200m renovation which is currently underway, all new buildings in Steamboat Square will be LEED certified.
