Gatlinburg SkyLift Park Earns Two NSAA Sustainable Slopes Badges

We are happy to announce that Gatlinburg SkyLift Park has enrolled in National Ski Areas Association’s (NSAA) Climate Challenge. The Climate Challenge is designed to help guide resorts in climate reform within their internal operations and engage in public climate advocacy. This program requires resorts to complete a climate inventory of their resort operations, set a target for greenhouse gas reduction, implement an annual project to work towards their reduction goal, and engage in at least four actions/acts of climate advocacy annually.

By being enrolled in this program, Gatlinburg SkyLift Park has fulfilled the requirements for section CC1 of the Climate Change Action and Climate Advocacy badges. For completing this sustainable action, NSAA awarded Gatlinburg SkyLift Park two Sustainable Slopes badges. Gatlinburg SkyLift Park has also been an active participant and endorser of NSAA’s Sustainable Slopes program, which helps ski resorts adopt more sustainable practices in their daily operations.
