Arapahoe Basin is committed to sustainability and the preservation of the natural beauty of its mountain for future generations. In addition to educating its employees on sustainability best practices, A-Basin provides its guests with reusable and compostable dining materials and information on its zero-waste goals. A-Basin also supports an energy-efficient snowmaking system and underwent a lighting retrofit in all of its base area buildings in order to cut down on electricity usage. A-Basin has monitored its resource consumption since the 2007-08 ski season and is focused on reducing usage across the all departments and on-mountain functions. Arapahoe Basin’s staff recognizes its role as stewards of the environment, and is enthusiastic about reaching its sustainability goals in the coming years.
