EPA Honors Stratton Mountain

Food Recovery and Recycling Practices Recognized

STRATTON MOUNTAIN, VT – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recently issued two certificates of achievement to Stratton Mountain, one for the resort’s composting initiative and another for comprehensive recycling programs.
“Thanks to your participation and results, EPA New England Food Recovery Challenge participants diverted over 56,000 tons of food to donation or composting in 2016,” reports Deborah Szaro, regional EPA administrator. Stratton has diverted 50 tons since 2014 when the composting program for cafeterias, restaurants and events began.

“We have incorporated single stream recycling throughout the resort and when composting became available we seized the opportunity to further reduce waste,” explained Stratton Environment and Safety Manager Jeffrey Cavagnino. In addition, Stratton was among the first resorts to offer reusable cutlery and dishes in its cafeteria.

Stratton is also the only organization in Vermont to be recognized as an EPA WasteWise partner; together the New England partners prevented and diverted more than 242,000 tons of waste that would otherwise have been disposed of in landfills or incinerators.
“For 23 years, EPA’s WasteWise program has helped organizations and businesses apply sustainable materials management practices to prevent and reduce municipal and industrial waste,” said Szaro in announcing the second certificate for Stratton.

“The environment is our No. 1 asset,” explained Cavagnino. Stratton has been recognized with numerous national and state environmental awards, beginning in the early 1990s when the resort invested $100,000 in a radio telemetry study of Vermont’s black bear. The research provided valuable data for land use planning throughout the state and resulted in Stratton’s permanent preservation of 1,500 acres of prime habitat now held in conservation easements.

Stratton’s unique habitat protection program earned the resort a Golden Eagle and three Vermont environmental awards, including the Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence and the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife Commissioner's Landowner Appreciation Award, the first time a corporation was recognized with this award.

JD McPherson

This rock ‘n roll re-inventor “exudes a new kind of risky energy.” From Oklahoma, now living in Nashville, JD McPherson just released his third LP, Undivided Heart & Soul, “with enough fuzz and fury to make those country ghosts shake.”

Stratton Mountain Earns Seventh National Safety Award

STRATTON MOUNTAIN, VT.
–The National Ski Areas Association has recognized Stratton Mountain with the 2017 Award for Best Overall Safety Program, the seventh national safety award for the southern Vermont resort.“With safety at the heart of Stratton’s culture, this year’s National Safety Month campaign was planned and staged by a cross-resort group of managers who started meeting in September to create engaging events,” explained Stratton Environment and Safety Manager Jeffrey Cavagnino.
In addition to all the safety month activities, Stratton worked toward becoming a HeartSafe Community with the purchase of 12 Automated External Defibrillators, which were placed throughout the resort for public access with locations printed on the trail map. Since last January, more than 200 employees and community members have completed CPR and AED training sponsored by Stratton.
Stratton has twice earned the national award for overall safety, twice for the best safety week program, twice for terrain park safety and once for best employee involvement and education.
The resort’s innovative “Play Smart, Play Safe, Enjoy the Mountain” campaign launched in 2002 with the complementary “Work Smart, Work Safe, Enjoy the Mountain” emblazoned on all uniforms and included in all communications. “This program goes beyond a list of Dos and Don’ts with a friendly informative approach that is woven throughout the resort, for guests and employees,” said Cavagnino.
Only six resorts from across the country earned NSAA awards for “exceptional initiatives to educate the public about skiing and snowboarding responsibly, not only during NSAA Safety Awareness Month in January but throughout the year,” according to the NSAA Journal.
The widely recognized Skier and Rider Responsibility Code was created by NSAA, and covers key topics including skiing in control, right of way, and lift safety .
“We incorporate clear, easy to understand messages that take the Responsibility Code to that next level,” Cavagnino said. “We strive to create a culture of safety, courtesy and respect. The message is simple: We care about our skiers, snowboarders and staff. We want everyone to enjoy the mountain experience. “
