Fresh Tracks at Stratton

By Lucyann Murray

We may be quiet, but we have been busy…

Wheels have been turning over here in the environmental sector of the mountain, and we are proud to announce the launch of Fresh Tracks online.

Our new website includes a complete timeline of Stratton’s environmental accomplishments from 1990 – 2013. The individual sub-pages on waste, energy, natural resources, infrastructure improvements, and education point out key initiatives going on throughout Stratton.

For example, did you know that we have initiated compost in Stratton-owned food service establishments?

Or that our tubing hill is made out of earth fill?

Or that we have used cork flooring in the dashing bear, and cork is a renewable resource that can be harvested from the same tree for up to 350 years?!

This is only the beginning of what has been accomplished around the resort. There is much to learn by browsing the website. There is even a section that tells YOU how to contribute to the Fresh Tracks mission if you click on the “Environmental Education” section.

Help us grow this initiative and protect, conserve, and enjoy for many generations.
