NH Green Slopes Program
New Hampshire is home to 22 ski mountains. These mountains were visited by more than two million skiers in the 2006-2007 ski season. The ski industry generates not only tourist dollars for the state, but also produces wastes and environmental impacts that require proper management.
The New Hampshire Pollution Prevention Program (NHPPP) has a new initiative entitled NH Green Slopes, which will target environmental outreach efforts to New Hampshire ski areas. The magnitude and diversity of services and operations at ski areas create a multifaceted environmental impact that include chemical and waste use, energy consumption and related air pollution, and solid and hazardous waste generation. With this in mind, NHPPP will provide ski areas with practical, proven techniques and technologies to reduce environmental impacts. NHPPP will be working with the National Ski Areas Association, Ski New Hampshire, and other state agencies to conduct a baseline assessment, site assessments, workshops and outreach material to reduce ski areas' environmental impact.
