At some point I’ll probably stop reporting about these sorts of announcements, which will probably be a good sign that “going green” has become so commonplace it’s no longer newsworthy. Nontheless, Vail Resorts announced they’ll be switching to 100% wind energy for all their ski areas and associated businesses. That’s not just in Colorado, the company also runs Heavenly at Lake Tahoe and a resort in Jackson Hole, WY. It’s also not a small deal – they’ll be the 2nd largest corporate buyer of wind power in the country after Whole Foods, and presumably someone who will make a statement about it. I’d like to see little signs on all the lift-poles between the ads for lip balm announcing the deal. Article here.
