Wind Turbine at Bolton Valley
Bolton Valley and Grouse Mountain are the latest resorts to build wind turbines on their hills

We've always been big fans of Massachusetts' Jiminy Peak, but when we heard they'd installed an on-site, electricity-generating wind turbine, we were doubly impressed. Jiminy's Zephyr turbine provides almost a third of the resort's year-round needs, as well as feeding any excess back into the local grid, enabling nearby towns to utilize green power without having to pay for it.
