Giving back to our communities is a fundamental part of the Vail Resorts culture. In fact, it is included as one of our six foundational values – Do Good. We encourage departments to complete volunteer projects together as a fun and worthwhile way to develop working relationships. Vail Resorts deploys hundreds of teams each year to local organizations, helping stock food banks, reading to local students, building new trails, and more.

Once you have an idea of what you’d like to do, let Anna Schumann know of your plans and please complete the following steps to set up your own team-based volunteer project:
- Make contact. Reach out to the organization to discuss and finalize project needs and available dates.
- Motivate the troops. Get your team on-board by sharing the impact of the organization you’ll be volunteering with and exactly what you’ll be doing for them.
- Dress the part. Please ask your partner organization what volunteers should wear and bring. When possible, please wear EpicPromise t-shirts or hats.
- Document the day. Take photos of your group in action! Please share a brief write-up of your team’s project as well as photos with Anna Schumann. We would love to share your story in future employee and community communications.
