Green Your Ski Season: Go Lightly

Cross country skiing It's just about ski season, so many are starting to think about hitting the slopes. And though the slippery sport is always fun, it's not always eco-friendly. This week's tips will help you enjoy skiing and snowboarding on a greener level.

Tip #3: Opt for Green Transportation

Unless you live next door to a ski resort, or work at one, getting to your favorite green slope may involve driving a long way. Thousands of cars heading to resorts can generate a lot of carbon emissions. Luckily, there are resorts that try to reduce fuel use, congestion, and pollution by offering ride shares, carpools, and shuttle services to their mountains. Many even offer perks for choosing greener transportation, like discounted lift tickets.

Tell us: How will you get to the slopes this season?
