Vail Resorts

KPCW was one of 36 local nonprofit organizations that received a community grant from the annual EpicPromise Foundation Wednesday night.

Every year, Vail Resorts hands out more than $9.4 million in cash and in-kind support to more than 250 nonprofit partners in the mountain communities in which they do business.

Locally, the grants and contributions focus on youth programs and environmental initiatives that impact the Summit and Wasatch County communities.

Vail Resorts recently released its EpicPromise progress report, showing the company’s headway toward achieving its net zero operating goals. 

Vail Resorts has a goal of having a net-zero operating footprint by 2030. There are three subgoals under the umbrella of that larger one: zero net emissions; zero waste to landfill; and zero net operating impact to forests and habitats.
