This year, try to make your winter sport journey as green as possible by staying in one of the top green ski hotels in the American West.If there’s one thing to look forward to this time of year once the holidays have passed, it’s ski and snowboard trips. This year, try to make your winter sport journey as green as possible by staying in one of the top green ski hotels in the American West. For example, Hotel Terra in Jackson Hole, Wyoming that was built from recycled materials, is LEED certified, and has in-room recycling programs. Or how about Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, California with its sustainable building materials, water-efficient appliances, and low voltage lighting. Or Devli’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colorado, heated by geothermal energy. And last, but not least, the Westin Riverfront Resort in Avon, Colorado, which was one of the first LEED Certified hotels in Colorado, has roof tiles made from recycled tires, and offers priority parking for hybrid cars. Make sure to put these vacation hot-spots at the top of your to-do list in 2009!
