Partner Profile
As a ski resort whose existence depends on a pristine mountain environment, we take our responsibility as stewards of the land very seriously. Deer Valley’s ongoing environmental efforts include supporting a volunteer employee recycling committee, implementing a comprehensive Forest Service management plan, monitoring and testing downstream water discharge, re-vegetation and reseeding projects, and preserving open space within resort boundaries.

Deer Valley® has committed to upgrading our snowmaking system by purchasing low energy and ultra-low energy efficient snow guns. Currently, one-third of the snowmaking equipment includes ultra-low energy SnowLogic tower guns that reduce cubic feet per minute (cfm) of air from 400-600 cfm to 6 cfm. Another one-third of the inventory includes low energy guns, using 120-130 cfm. Deer Valley continues to utilize Rocky Mountain Power’s Self-Direction Credit Program to offset the cost of using these energy efficient snowmaking guns with a monthly credit. The resort’s snowmaking reservoirs, which hold over 25 million gallons of water, drastically reduces dependence on our precious water resources from the city and state and create a wetland habitat for fish and other wildlife. Other environmental efforts this year include using Nest® Learning Thermostats in certain lodging properties to reduce energy consumption. Nest® thermostats react to different seasons, times of day, and when a unit is not in use. Additionally, Deer Valley Resort has held a mountain clean-up day since 2008, resort employees are encouraged to participate by collecting both trash and removing invasive weeds.
