October, November, December 2019 UPDATE

THE WHISTLER BLACKCOMB STRATEGIC ALLIANCE TEAM

Dear partners, as we are well into the New Year, we wanted to take a look back at the last three months of 2019 and celebrate what we’ve accomplished so far for the winter season. From Mountain-top activation's, to new Valley events and of course of our annual fun-filled partner summit, we’ve had a great start. The snowfall came a bit later than expected, but we are getting buried now – to date, we’ve received more than 600cm of snow and there is plenty more on the way.

Please enjoy our latest read.

Commitment to Zero Updates

 

As a company we are on track to reach our industry-leading Commitment to Zero goal to achieve a zero net operating footprint by 2030. Announced in 2017, the three pillars of this commitment include (1) zero net emissions by 2030 with 50 percent progress toward this goal by 2025, (2) zero waste to landfill by 2030 and increasing waste diversion to 50 percent by the end of 2020, and (3) zero net operating impact on forests and habitat. Key highlights from this year’s progress report include:

  • Energy efficiency: During the 2018/19 season, we invested $2.4 million in energy efficiency upgrades that included snow-making operations and switching to LED lighting. Collectively the impact of these upgrades means we have achieved 25 percent of our energy-efficiency goal.

  • Waste diversion: We diverted more than eleven million pounds of waste from landfill over the last season through recycling and composting, allowing us to achieve 44 percent waste diversion – exceeding our target of 42 percent for the year.

  • Reforesting habitat: By reforesting 10 acres on the Western slope of Colorado that had been impacted by the bark beetle, we 100% met our commitment to plant or restore an acre of forest for every acre displaced by our operations.
