Not just ski bums
As the stewards of our privately owned and Forest Service permitted lands, it is our duty to ensure Alta addresses the challenges posed by increased visitation, development and growth. With our mission, philosophy, Green Team and definition of sustainability, the Alta Environmental Center’s day-to-day work includes these mirroring three primary duties: 

  • Pursue sustainability internally for Alta Ski Area through the conservation of energy, water, land, and business.
  • Act as a resource to our community in an effort to promote more sustainability initiatives through partnerships and stewardship.
  • Encourage and foster environmental education and research through internal and third-party collaboration to guide management efforts.

Together they create a well-rounded team that strives to encourage our mission, meet our goals and make sound decisions, thereby becoming the backbone of the Alta Environmental Center.

Sustainability Defined & Engaged

People, planet, profit
The Alta Environmental Center embraces the science of ecology and uses a system approach to sustainability. By using the "triple-triple" bottom line as our foundation, we’ve defined three priority areas for each bottom line. This "triple-triple" bottom line provides a definition of sustainability and thereby creating a decision-making lens to guide our strategies and ultimately implement best management practices.
