Are you planning a skiing holiday this year? Why not consider green skiing this time. As the earth warms due to global warming, ski slopes are more affected by this change. Currently, they are exploring ways to help alleviate this problem.
The good news is that you too can do something about it. There are several ways you can do this. You may think that your individual efforts to make a change are not enough, but they are! So, here are some eco-friendly tips you can do to protect our environment.
Ride smartly for a greener journey
Instead of flying to other places for your ski trip, travel to the ski slopes near your home. The good thing is that you can pack other things like air conditioners and enjoy your food, drink and snacks.
Also, if your friends and colleagues are as interested as you, you can have a carp with them. But if you insist on flying to other destinations, you can ask if this service provides an airport shuttle service. This allows you to save on gasoline instead of renting a car.
Choose greener ski slopes
Recreation areas are now more aware of the effects of climate change and are now looking for a greener environment. In order to choose greener, you may ask your questions before booking. You can ask them questions such as:
What do they recycle?
Do they have a water conservation plan?
Are their cleaning products environmentally friendly?
Do their cars that help clear the roads use biofuels?
Do they use wind energy for energy needs?
Do they offer airport shuttle service?
This helps them realize that their efforts for eco-friendly accommodation are really important. Also, praise their efforts and encourage them to continue to maintain environmentally friendly facilities.
Field skiing? why not!
You may also consider cross-country skiing this year. Depending on the snowfall in your area, this can be done in many “local” places. The good news is that cross-country skiing burns more calories than springs.
Respect the environment
Every time tourists flock to the ski slopes, it is the environment that suffers due to the irresponsibility of the people. So be responsible with your garbage every time you visit the ski slopes. Do not throw your rubbish everywhere. Use degradable products and use plastic bags. Follow proper separation and recycle as much as possible.
With these simple tips, you will not only enjoy your ski vacation, but you can also help further the destruction of the planet. So think green, grow green and support a greener skiing holiday. Let’s continue to take care of this planet that we call home.
