Green Up Vermont: Green Up Day is May 4!

This year Green Up Day is Saturday, May 4, 2024! Ski Vermont is a proud long-time sponsor of Green Up Vermont. Vermont ski areas support Green Up Vermont's mission to promote the stewardship of the state’s natural landscape and waterways, and the livability of its communities. 

Each year, resort employees and guests alike gather to help clean up their local roads and waterways. We are looking forward to another year of keeping Vermont green and clean! Safety vests, green trash collection bags, t-shirts, and water bottles are all available at

New this year is the VT Top to Bottom Green Up which will take place all along Route 100, aka The Skier’s Highway. Green Up Vermont is organizing the longest litter pick-up team ever with the goal of covering all 223 miles of Route 100 – from North Troy to Stamford. Volunteers start at every mile marker to complete their one-mile clean-up/Green Up in about one hour, beginning at 10 a.m. 

Local community businesses and organizations are choosing their own mile, and rallying their team of volunteers to be listed as part of our Guinness World Record for fame, bragging rights, and a cleaner, greener Vermont. 

Vermont Ski Areas Green Up

Ski areas are part of Vermont’s working landscape and prioritize stewardship of the land, spending millions of dollars in planning, permitting and management. Vermont's ski areas strive to provide the recreational opportunities that inspire visitors to visit Vermont--and to protect the outdoor spaces that keep them coming back. 

Jay Peak - Calling All Volunteers!

Jay Peak invites volunteers to join staff and other volunteers May 4th in the Stateside Parking Lot starting at 9am. Assignments, gloves, bags, and maps to will be provided and the first 75 people to fill a bag with roadside, trailside, or swimming hole litter will receive a voucher to Miso Hungry (good through the 24+25 season)!  Jay Peak extends a huge thanks to Miso Hungry for their generous gifts in exchange for greening up!

Stowe, Okemo, and Mount Snow's Epic Promise

Why Green Up once when you can do it twice? Stowe Mountain Resort will be showcasing its commitment to a green Vermont by holding its Resort Green Up Day on Friday, May 3, during which staff will clean areas around Mt. Mansfield, lift lines, parking areas, base areas, and the ski trails, as well as Spruce Peak. 

For Green Up Day on May 4th, Stowe joins Mount Snow and Okemo in gathering teams for Greening Up Route 100, as each cleans up the land in their respective areas while participating in the Guinness World Record Route 100 clean-up effort.

Sugarbush and Stratton Lead the Pack

All Sugarbush and Stratton staff jumped into Green Up Day on 5/1, cleaning up land on and around their resorts as well as surrounding public spaces

Killington and Mad River Glen: Community Direction

Strong ties to the community (Killington Resort to the town of Killington and Mad River Glen to the Mad River Valley) means lending your voice to make things better. Killington and Mad River both used their platforms to communicate Green Up Day times and locations to their followers and readership.

Middlebury Snowbowl: Small Area, Big Plans

Sometimes it takes a large effort; Snowbowl staff have taken on more than your average cleanup, targeting large, recyclable metal refuse and decommissioned pipe.
