Employees from Vail and Beaver Creek Construct Trail for EpicPromise Day on Sept. 19

16 September 2015
This Saturday, approximately 300 Vail Mountain Resort and Beaver Creek Resort employees will gather to construct and improve the Mesquite Trail in Avon's Singletree neighborhood. The volunteers will represent a portion of 2,000 Vail Resorts employees giving back that day across various states.
 
WHAT:          EpicPromise Day is Vail Resorts’ annual company-wide volunteer day. Whether forging new trails or helping restore local Boys & Girls Clubs, EpicPromise Day allows employees of all ages (and their friends and family, too!) to rally around a local community need. Originally established in 2010, this annual event has allowed a total of 5,121 volunteers to give 19,229 hours of time to five years’ worth of projects. 
 
WHY:            Over the last six years, Vail Resorts has consistently demonstrated a commitment to sustainability through environmental and community support. Through EpicPromise, the company contributes $7.8 million in charitable donations to 250 nonprofit partners, organizes 20,000 hours of company-sponsored employee volunteer time, and executes on a variety of environmental initiatives each year.
 
WHEN:         Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (A brief program will begin at 12:30 p.m., with a Vail Resorts representative scheduled to speak shortly thereafter.)
