EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering is in our DNA. In fact, Vail Resorts’ employees volunteer more than 20,000 hours each year with nonprofit organizations in their local communities. EpicVolunteers was created out of our employees' desire for more enriching, in-depth "Experiences of a Lifetime." The program Vail Resorts employees to have a week off - 40 hours - to volunteer with the charity of their choice, all while getting paid. So far, we've sent 68 EpicVolunteers to a variety of service projects, from Nepal to Honduras, Mexico to Peru, Borneo to Nicaragua - and dozens of projects in our own back yards.
