Green Your Ski Adventure: Eco-friendly Equipment


Recent snowfall in some parts of the country has skiers rejoicing. This week's tips will help you carve the slopes in eco-conscious style.  

Tip # 3: Choose Greener Skis

A host of ski outfitters offer sustainable equipment. German ski maker Grown uses wood sourced from sustainably managed forests and eliminates the remaining footprint through offsets offered by Swiss non-profit myclimate. Colorado-based Liberty and other producers build cores from fast-growing bamboo.
