Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum Sustainability Commitment
The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum (CSSM) is committed to sustainability of the Vail Valley and surrounding mountain environment. CSSM values the historical, ecological, economic, and cultural health of all mountain communities. CSSM strives to engage visitors, members and employees in environmental stewardship and sustainability. CSSM also encourages visitors, members, volunteers and staff to participate in local cultural and educational opportunities that enrich our community’s sense of well being. The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum has established a Green Team to oversee sustainability efforts and maintains a Sustainability Action Plan to set goals and guide progress. Our Green Team is responsible for creating an annual sustainability report to document and share yearly sustainability accomplishments.
 
CSSM Sustainability Goals:

Minimize Negative Community and Ecosystem Impacts
Educate all Museum users on Sustainable Practices
 
Responsible Travel Pledge
The Colorado Ski Museum reduces air pollution and vehicle traffic by encouraging our guests, customers, and employees to use group shuttle services and public transportation whenever possible. Our employees are rewarded for using alternative and public transportation to get to work including: carpooling, walking, biking, and using local public transportation. Whenever possible, we choose fuel-efficient vehicles to support our operations.
 
Giving Back Programs
