Take a carbon-neutral ski trip to Big Sky by offsetting travel emissions

Big Sky, Mont. (December 10, 2020) – This winter, Big Sky Resort invites guests to become carbon-neutral travelers. Guests can calculate the impact of their trip to Big Sky and offset the carbon emissions created by travel. 
“Providing skiers with an opportunity to offset their trip aligns with our sustainability goals at the resort. This is an environmental action that reaches even beyond our operations,” said Troy Nedved, Big Sky Resort’s general manager. “While resort-wide carbon neutrality remains the primary goal, the offset calculator is an additional tool that allows guests to join us in our pursuit of sustainability.” 

Big Sky Resort has partnered with Tradewater to offer an easy-to-use calculator so that guests can offset their travel to Big Sky with high-impact carbon offsets. Tradewater collects and destroys old refrigerants that are 10,900 times more potent than carbon dioxide.  

“Managing and destroying refrigerants is an essential strategy for fighting climate change,” said Tim Brown, CEO of Tradewater. “This partnership gives Big Sky skiers the opportunity to help collect and destroy some of the most potent greenhouse gases that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.” 

By 2030, Big Sky Resort’s sustainability initiative, The Big Picture, aims to cut its entire atmospheric impact by operating with net-zero carbon emissions.
