Representatives from the nation’s largest ski resort companies explained what their organizations are doing to reduce their environmental impact at the Mountain Towns 2030 conference Wednesday. 

Vail Resorts Sustainability Director Kate Wilson says the organization set a resort-wide goal in 2017 to be net-zero carbon by 2030. That includes zero net emissions, zero waste to landfills and zero net operating impact to forests and habitat. Vail acquired Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Village in 2014.
