Since Commitment to Zero launched almost three years ago, Vail Resorts has been applauded for its industry-leading sustainability pledge with recognition from the ski industry, resort communities, and state of Colorado. With this week’s announcement of the 2020 Denver Business Journal “40 Under 40” recipients, it’s the person running Commitment to Zero being honored – Kate Wilson, senior director of sustainability at Vail Resorts.
The ski industry used to only be about operations. Women leaders are helping refocus it on experience. Vail Resorts, with women at the helm of eight ski areas — including three of its five Colorado resorts — is leading the industry’s charge toward gender diversity.
