Annual Vail Mountain cleanup set for June 13
Vail Mountain and Vail Resorts Echo invite community volunteers to join employees for the annual mountain cleanup, scheduled for Wednesday, June 13.
“The turnout for mountain cleanup seems to be growing each year, and this year should be no exception,” said Adam Bybliw, environmental manager for Vail Mountain. “We're looking forward to making it to areas that we couldn't access on cleanup day last year due to the snow levels and getting the mountain in shape for all our guests to enjoy this summer.”
Volunteers are encouraged to pre-register with the Mountain Information Center and complete release waivers prior to cleanup day. On cleanup day, all volunteers should meet at the base of the Eagle Bahn Gondola (#19) in Lionshead by 9 a.m. with their own work gloves, water, sun block, hat, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes and clothing for inclement weather. A limited supply of gloves for cleanup will be made available. Teams will be transported up the mountain at 9 a.m., provided with trash bags and directed to specific cleanup sites. In the case of severe weather, a decision will be made the morning of the clean up whether or not to continue or postpone the cleanup.
At 12 p.m., the Vail Mountain dining staff will host a complimentary barbecue at Eagle's Nest for all volunteers, at which time a single-day complimentary lift ticket voucher for the 2012-2013 winter season will be distributed to volunteers. After lunch, teams will meet again to continue cleaning and hike down to the base area on assigned runs. Those who choose not to walk down the mountain may download the gondola.
To pre-register, provide your name and the number of people in your party to the Mountain Information Center in Lionshead, open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and daily beginning Monday, June 4. Or, call (970) 754-VAIL (8245). All volunteers will need to complete and sign a liability release and bring it with them on the day of mountain cleanup in order to participate. Liability releases are available in the Mountain Information Center or online at www.vail.com/mountaincleanup.
