Green Initiatives

As good stewards of the land, we embrace every opportunity to reduce the impact of our operation in the high alpine environment where we work and play. This unwavering commitment by Lee Canyon and our parent company, Powdr Corporation, is to continually improve in reducing the carbon emissions produced at every stage of our operation.

Past Projects

Solar Panel-

Installed in 2011.  Being completely off the electrical grid mainly powered by diesel generators, our solar panel was installed to alleviate strain on our diesel consumption.  With our our increased battery bank we conserve up to 144 gallons of diesel per night.

Current Projects

Annual Mountain Clean up.

Every spring after the snow melts the resort's family and friends and anyone who wants to, pitches in and cleans up the trash left and lost on the resort during the year.  Stay tuned for our next clean up, because you're invited.

LED Lights-

Installed throughout our resort to save 2-3 gallons an hour of diesel fuel.

Solar Battery Bank

Increased from 48 to 144 batteries powering us with zero diesel operation during nightly closed hours.
