MAKING A DIFFERENCE

At Vail Resorts, our business is to provide experiences of a lifetime in the great outdoors. Through EpicPromise, we take special responsibility in helping to conserve the natural environments and communities that surround our resorts. Each year, Vail Resorts gives more than $8.6 million in cash and in-kind support to more than 250 nonprofit partners in our mountain communities. Our employees also donate more than 20,000 hours of company sponsored volunteer time annually. Through these partnerships, Vail Resorts helps ensure our communities thrive.

HOW WE PRACTICE OUR MISSION AND VALUES

Over the past five years we have supported resource and forest conservation; we have reduced our energy use by 10% and pledged to reduce it by another 10% before 2020; and raised more than $3.5 million through our guest donation program to sustain the health of our forests.
Our sustainability team will continue to set and help us achieve goals like The Next 10, and we will engage all of our employees in programs like EpicVolunteers, EpicPromise Day, and other community involvement efforts. By engaging our guests through EpicPromise our stewardship is part of the guest experience from booking a trip online to engaging with the natural environments and communities that surround our mountains.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
