Green Up Day 2022

Saturday, May 7 is Green Up Day in Vermont. Vermonters across the state go out in their communities and pick up trash along roadsides and in public places. The organizing body, Green Up Vermont, provides green safety t-shirts, green trash collection bags and other resources for those looking to green up their local communities. 

As members of the local community, Vermont ski areas are getting in on the action too! Resort employees and patrons alike will gather on Green Up Day to clean up the mountains after a long winter. You can find a few examples of Green Up Day plans at Vermont ski areas below.

Mad River Glen

Mad River Glen hosted a shareholder and employee Green Up Day on Saturday, April 2nd ahead of the annual shareholder meeting. 

Mount Snow Resort

Mount Snow had an employee base area Green Up Day on Friday, April 14, and will have an on-mountain Green Up Day for employees and the option to volunteer with the Southern Vermont Trails Association planned for Friday, May 27. Mount Snow has consistently supported the, "take a walk and check for trash" service message and is always working in support of the Vail Resorts EpicPromise Commitment to Zero.

While Green Up Day is May 7th, folks can sign up at the library, record what section of road you will cover and get Green Bags.
