A past winner of two Golden and six Silver Eagle Awards, Aspen Skiing Co. has made environmental excellence its business, setting high standards within the Colorado community and among other ski resorts. Its environmental stewardship is evident in each and every facet of its operation. Aspen Skiing Co. leads the way through its many programs such as a $1.8 million subsidy of local mass transit; land trust partnerships; an employee-directed Environment Foundation; the first industry environmental web page; an environmental scholarship program; a community environmental advisory committee and its water saving and lighting retrofit programs. Other programs and initiatives include environmental purchasing policies; building recycling and renewable energy initiatives; the ground-breaking Sustainability Report and the state-of-the-art Sundeck Restaurant (one of only 10 "certified green buildings" in the country). The company projects a thorough understanding of the impact of its initiatives and the costs of undertaking them. Aspen has forsaken evolution for revolution, offering up nothing less than a seabed change in the way that the ski industry does business. (Finalist: Whistler/Blackcomb, British Columbia)
