Oregon's Timberline Lodge has announced a partnership with nonprofit Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to offset the carbon footprint of the new Jeff Flood Express chairlift by purchasing renewable energy credits. Timberline will also offer BEF SkiGreen Tags for $2 to individual customers who wish to offset vehicle emissions from commutes to and from the mountain.

"As a catalyst for change in the renewable energy industry, BEF works with Timberline and other leaders in the snow sports industry to support non-polluting renewable sources of power, such as wind and solar energy," says Patrick Nye, vice president of sales at BEF.
