Sustainability

Our Commitment

Beaver Valley is committed to working towards a sustainable future.  The beauty and tranquility of our unique location along the Beaver River is highly valued by members, staff and guests.  We understand the deep connection of our actions to the well-being of the natural resources that we depend on, and to the well-being of others.  This guides our planning and day-to-day decisions to help us contribute to a better world.

We are an official endorser of The Sustainable Slopes Charter.

And a participant in the Climate Challenge.

Climate Challenge

Our Projects

resource restoration

Natural resources are the lifeline of our club’s operations and with this awareness we conserve and restore them.  All of our paper products are 100% post-consumer recycled content and we practice sustainable forest management.  We not only participate in an “Anti-Idling” Campaign in our pick-up/drop-off zones and parking lots, in 2010 we had the highest success rate of all participating resorts in Ontario in decreasing our idling.

Waste Management

Our waste management is a dynamic system that evolves as new technologies and ideas develop at the club. In 2010 we began single stream recycling, saving a lot of time and waste.  In 2011, in further efforts to reduce the waste generated here at the club, we have a new compost program.  All organics from the kitchen and from the cafeteria will be sorted, stored in our Molok in-ground storage container and brought to a near-by organics processing facility.  Our waste receptacles are made of 100% recycled plastics and have 3 streams for our guests to sort – organics, recycling and garbage.  If you’re at the club, be a part of the change and sort your waste!

Energy Conservation

We are always seeking more ways to reduce our energy consumption and we have taken many strides to do so.  Our washrooms are our featured visible demonstration of our efforts, and our work runs even deeper than eco-efficient upgrades.  We have recently been awarded a Sustainable Slopes Grant in recognition for our commitment to helping to create a sustainable future by the National Ski Areas Association. This grant rewards us with 5 in-kind high efficiency snowmaking guns from Snow Economics/HKD Snowmakers.

Education and awareness

With a Sustainability Coordinator on staff in a small office, sustainability is often a topic of conversation.  Since 2010 we have hosted a Staff Sustainability Workshop to engage employees of all levels and departments in the sustainability strategy and solutions.  Many of our employees and members are passionate about helping to create a better world, thus sustainability is becoming a thread that weaves through our entire organization.

Keep an eye out around the club for ways that you can help us stay green!
