SKI GREEN for the 2013-2014 winter season!

Dodge Ridge has partnered with Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) since 2008 to give guests and employees the option to ski green.  Every $2 SkiGreen Offset you buy reduces approximately 150 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions — the average emissions of 1 car trip to and from the mountain. How? That $2 directly supports a carbon reduction project where an equivalent 150 lbs of greenhouse gases will be kept from the atmosphere on your behalf, effectively balancing the impact of your trip. You can purchase your SkiGreen offset at any Dodge Ridge ticket location – plus you’ll recieve a FREE SkiGreen sticker to show your support on your gear.

PG&E Climatesmart

Through the PG&E program ClimateSmart 100% of Dodge’s electricity usage is voluntarily offset. In 2012-13, Dodge Ridge balanced out more than 750 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle

Approximately 50% of the garbage produced at Dodge Ridge is recycled. Recycle bins for paper, glass and plastic are located in our restaurant and cafe areas, outdoor dining areas and in the main plaza. Further environmental choices include using energy saving lights, zero waste Dyson hand dryers in the new Family Lodge, and utilizing environmentally friendly spoons and forks in the restaurants.
