April 22 - Earth Day
The core vision of our company is to “Provide an ideal mountain resort experience while respecting Mt. Hood”. We are proud of our record of sustainable achievements and accomplishments at Meadows, starting in our early days using helicopters to place lift towers, meaning roads did not have to be constructed to access them. We pioneered using native wildflowers for revegating areas of construction. Most recently we achieved gold and silver LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council on our Mt. Medical Clinic and the Patrol HQ buildings.
But sustainability isn't just about these major initiatives. It's more about the little things we do and the choices we make every day. So let's not confine our thoughts regarding the earth and the choices we make to this one day. Let's make create some sustainable habits - a change for the better.
Earth Day at Meadows: January, 1st through December 31st
“We are all connected -- people, animals, plants, and insects because we are here together, in this moment, on this planet. All living things call Earth home, but only we humans can reverse the threats to Earth that we have created.
Do one thing. Do one thing every day. Unplug an appliance that's not in use, turn off a light when leaving the room, pick up a piece of litter, plant a seed -- one simple task that acknowledges and strengthens our connection to each other and to our collective home.”
Happy Earth Day everyone! We'll see you on the mountain.
