Arapahoe Basin anounced a switch to offset 100% of its energy use with wind power through Renewable Choice.
To celebrate, the Basin will hold a Climate Awareness Day Saturday, February 9, 2008. The ski area will spend the day partnering with local and national companies focusing on educating the public on alternative energy sources as well as other environmentally friendly practices.
The move is part of a growing trend in the climate conscious ski industry. Copper and all five Vail resorts now get their energy from wind.
What I'm waiting for is wind turbines at the ski areas. Lord knows places like Breckenridge are windy enough.
