Ski Resort Report Card Issued

Laramie, WY – An environmental group has given Jackson Hole Mountain Resort a B grade and Grand Targhee Resort a C grade for their environmental practices.

Those are the same grades the resorts got last year in the Ski Area Environmental Scorecard put out by the Ski Area Citizens Coalition.

The scorecard grades environmental policies and practices at ski resorts across the West. This year, the group added 14 ski resorts in western Canada.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort scored low for water conservation but higher for its position on climate change and use of biodiesel fuel.

Grand Targhee scored well for preserving wetlands and roadless areas, but low for its development practices.
