From purchasing credits to offset the carbon footprint of every meeting and event, supporting tree replanting efforts to offset paper use, providing recycling receptacles in every function space and providing energy-efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems, Viceroy Snowmass is at the vanguard of sustainable resort development, and is seeking LEED®* Silver certification.
Green event planning starts with paperless sales kits, catering menus and wedding planners and continues with digital contracts and notifications, registrations and presentations.
The chef and catering staff source local, seasonal and organic food—including sustainable seafood, meat and poultry—and whenever possible use only organic and/or fair-trade coffee, tea, sugar, juice, mixers, wine and spirits.
Events feature pitchers of pure, filtered Rocky Mountain water rather than water bottles; organic and/or pesticide-free flower arrangements and centerpieces crafted from living plants, fruit and vegetables; soy, palm wax or beeswax candles with cotton wicks; china and linen and/or unbleached, recycled paper products; and many more thoughtful, sustainable details.
After an event, Viceroy Snowmass donates leftover food to one of several food banks in the area; centerpieces and flowers go to a local hospital or hospice; other materials may find their way to the nearby Anderson Ranch Arts Center or local schools, as appropriate.
To book a meeting, conference, retreat or special event, please contact the Viceroy Snowmass sales & catering department at (970) 923-8000 or send a request for proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
