Park City Mountain and Vail Resorts have made significant progress toward our sustainability goal of reaching a zero net operating footprint by 2030.
As part of Vail Resorts Commitment to Zero, in October 2021, we kicked off the groundbreaking Elektron Solar Project, a new solar farm outside Salt Lake City. This investment will provide renewable energy for 100 percent of Park City Mountain’s electric usage in 2023. Last year, Vail Resorts surpassed our 2025 interim goal of 50% progress toward zero net emissions, three years early, and achieved 100% renewable electricity across our North American operations (including Park City Mountain).
As part of Commitment to Zero, Vail Resorts committed $25 million in energy-efficiency investments across our resorts, with a focus on snowmaking, buildings, and lifts. Energy efficiency is a key strategy in reducing the emissions associated with our operations. This season Park City's snowmaking department will be introducing new solar powered snow guns to its existing system that operates with approximately 70% low-e guns. The snowmaking department is focused on operating the snowmaking system as efficiently as possible, which involves only making snow during optimal temperatures and investing in new low-energy snowmaking equipment. We continuously monitor all points of our operation to ensure we are operating efficiently.
In FY23, Vail Resorts reduced landfill waste by nearly 1.2 million pounds, compared to FY22. This result was largely due to capital investment, employee engagement and education, and increased diversion streams, such as compost program expansions, and snack wrapper recycling. Along with all Vail Resorts’ resorts, Park City will continue to innovate to eliminate waste sent to landfill based on a common set of guiding principles: to reduce waste at the source, reuse materials, and recycle or compost the rest.
