Cottonwood Canyons Foundation Resorts Win Award

Press Release

May 3, 2013

The National Ski Area Association (NSAA) awarded the Golden Eagle Award for medium size ski areas (200,000- 500,000 visits) to Utah’s four Salt Lake County resorts, Alta, Snowbird, Brighton & Solitude, under the umbrella of the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation (CCF). Established in 1993, the Golden Eagle Awards are the highest honors bestowed on resorts for environmental performance.

"We are honored for this recognition of the great work of the CCF,” said Bob Bonar, president of Snowbird and co-founder of the CCF. “Hundreds of thousands of dollars has been raised by this program, which supports environmental stewardship and education.”

Since 2002, a partnership among the four Big and Little Cottonwood canyon resorts, Salt Lake City and the U.S. Forest Service has demonstrated the power of collaboration between businesses, government and the public via CCF.

“It has been extremely rewarding to be a part of the collaborative efforts and dialogue for not only our ski area, but also for the protection and education relative to the careful and sustainable use of our collective sensitive watershed areas,” said Alta Ski Area’s general manager and president Onno Wieringa, who also serves as director of the Alta Environmental Center.
