Green Your Sports: Eco-Friendly Skiing

Skis Outdoor exercise is a great way to reconnect with nature. This week, we're giving you tips about how to be more earth-conscious while pursuing your fitness goals.

Tip #3: Ski Green

Though skiing isn't the greenest of sports (resorts guzzle freshwater for artificial powder and electricity for lifts), some destinations have opted to use wind power and recycled snow instead. Help green the sport by strapping on eco-skis when hitting the slopes. Grab an old pair from a friend, buy used, or invest in skis from an earth-conscious company. Lokomotiv Skis, for example, plants a tree for every pair they produce, and make their gear from bamboo.
