[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) is collaborating with 11 ski areas in the Pacific Northwest to address the threat of global climate change on the environment and their industry. By implementing a variety of green power programs, these members of the Pacific Northwest Ski Areas Association (PNSAA) are working to demonstrate the positive environmental impact an industry can have when commercial companies come together on an issue. Last year only one ski resort in the association, Mt. Hood Meadows, started a green tag program that allowed customers to offset their facilities use with green tag purchases. The Stateline Wind Facility, located along the Oregon and Washington border, will supply the green tags for this program. Ski areas participating this year include Cooper Spur, Hoodoo, Mission Ridge, Mt. Ashland, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline Lodge, Ski Anthony Lakes, Stevens Pass, Schweitzer Mountain and Summit at Snoqualmie.
