THANKS TO YOU—WE'RE PLANTING 50,000 TREES!
The 2020/21 ski season may look a little different, but our Play Forever commitment to a healthy planet remains steadfast. Eldora and Nokian Tyres – Eldora's longstanding official tire partner – announced earlier this year that a tree would be planted for every season pass sold during the promotional period. Together with Nokian Tyres, we understand today’s environmental challenges, and have a shared commitment to protect our environment, inspire environmental action and reduce our carbon footprint.
We are thrilled to announce that alongside Copper Mountain, Killington, Mt. Bachelor, and Snowbird and with support from POWDR and Nokian Tyres, we will be planting 50,000 trees!
Eldora and our POWDR partner resorts will work with Nokian Tyres to identify specific in-state reforestation projects, including right here in Colorado, to plant the 50,000 trees on behalf of our passholders. We are working with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation, to plant the trees in spring 2021. On average, a mature tree absorbs carbon dioxide at a rate of up to 48 pounds per year, which means it will sequester approximately 1 ton of carbon dioxide over 40 years. At that rate, the 50,000 trees planted will absorb nearly 50,000 tons of carbon dioxide during their lifetime, countering the emissions of around 9,800 passenger vehicles driven for one year.
We believe there is nothing better for the soul than to live a balanced life full of adventure, and we believe those in the future should have the same opportunities we have today. To make this happen, Eldora is committed to doing all we can to protect the environment and enable participation in adventure.
Trees are an incredibly important part of life on earth, and planting trees will create benefits for people, nature and wildlife for years to come as Eldora continues to Play Forever. Planting trees is one of the best nature-based solutions to restoring forests, sequestering carbon and mitigating the effects of climate change.
Through this initiative, Eldora continues its commitment to Play Forever and the Nokian Tyres commitment to helping save the world’s winters for tomorrow’s generation. For more information on purchasing a season pass, explore our season pass offerings below.
