Offsetting 100% Energy Use
JHMR is offsetting 100% of our electricity usage with renewable energy from a renewable source mix, including wind, biomass, small hydro, and geothermal. With a three-year commitment in place, this has the same environmental impact as planting 5292 acres of trees (an area over twice the size of the Mountain Resort). This commitment is just part of a robust company wide environmental management system including using sustainable construction for the new Bridger Restaurants and adopting a visionary mass transit program for staff and season passholders. Annually audited by KPMG, JHMR is extremely proud of our ISO 14001 registration, one of only two ski resorts, and one of the smallest companies to achieve this in the US.
