USGBC: Snowmass Village Building Tour
August 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Join the USGBC Colorado Roaring Fork branch for a tour of Snowmass Village. This will include a tour of Aspen Skiing Company’s 115 KW micro-hydroelectric plant on Snowmass Mountain.
Using water from a snowmaking pond, it generates 150,000 kWh annually, preventing the emission of 300,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Also on the agenda is a tour of the new buildings at Base Village which are all tracking LEED Gold or higher Certification. Finally, attendees will have the choice to either bike or take a gondola ride up to Elk Camp (LEED Silver) where they will be given an intro to the new Lost Forest, which includes a brand new alpine coaster, zip lines, biking trails, ropes challenges and climbing walls!
