NAW Staff, Friday 05 October 2007 - 12:05:14

Powderhorn Resort, located outside of Grand Junction, Colo., plans to offset the energy requirements of two of its three ski lifts with wind energy credits purchased from Renewable Choice Energy of Boulder, Colo.

In addition to purchasing renewable energy, Powderhorn has adopted a resort-wide environmental plan, including recycling plastics, aluminum, glass, skis, printer cartridges, cardboard, oil, paper, uniforms and some metals.

"The ski industry, and Powderhorn in particular, loves the mountain environment with which we have been entrusted. It is our goal to be recognized as a staunch and loyal protector of the beauties and wonders that the earth provides us," says Steve Bailey, CEO of Powderhorn.
