Creating a Promising Future
EpicPromise is how we will create a more promising future for generations to come. Vail Resorts wholeheartedly believes in preserving the intrinsic essence of the natural environments and communities where we work, play and call home.
At Vail Resorts, everything we do is built upon the promise of bringing together the mountains, our communities, employees and guests to ignite a passion for the outdoors, conserve the natural environment and support our local communities for a bright, sustainable future.
Vail Resorts will be a benchmark for sustainable business practices. We will continue to re-imagine how to be an effective sustainability leader as we actively work every day to strengthen our communities, find operational inefficiencies, foster healthy environments and deliver strong financial results.
How we practice our mission and vision
Annually we give more than $8.6M to more than 250 nonprofit partners focusing on youth programs and environmental initiatives. Over the past five years we have supported resource and forest conservation; we have reduced our energy use by 10% and pledged to reduce it by another 10% before 2020; and raised more than $3.5 million through our guest donation program to sustain the health of our forests.
Our sustainability team will continue to set and help us achieve goals like The Next 10, and we will engage all of our employees in programs like EpicVolunteers, EpicPromise Day, and other community involvement efforts. We will also continue our community grants and college scholarships, and other successful community-serving projects like CME Fill the Van. In addition, by engaging our guests through EpicPromise our stewardship is part of the guest experience from booking a trip online to engaging with the natural environments and communities that surround our mountains.
This commitment relies on our individual and collective participation to ensure we are igniting a passion for the great outdoors and strong communities for generations to come. In creating EpicPromise, we hope to inspire Our Employees, Our Guests and Our Communities to take action with us.
