Eco-Friendly Initiatives at Viceroy Snowmass

Viceroy Snowmass is engaged in an ongoing process of implementing environmental hotel and sustainability initiatives. This course of action begins by creating a written environmental and sustainability policy and enacting a water and energy savings plan and comprehensive recycling programs.

Sustainability Practices

LEED Gold

Viceroy Snowmass was designed and registered with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) and was awarded Gold certification.

LEED defines “green building” as the practice of using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment.

Energy Savings

Based on LEED standards, our building is 30% more energy efficient than the design standard for traditionally constructed buildings.

The building is equipped with improved insulation, high-performance windows, and efficient, centrally controlled mechanical and electrical systems.

Low-Flow Fixtured

All of the fixtures installed in the hotel are low flow, meaning they use less water than ordinary fixtures.

Viceroy Snowmass anticipates an annual savings of 1.35 million gallons of water or a 31% improvement than without low-flow fixtures.

Green Housekeeping

Our housekeeping staff utilizes our state-of-the-art Electrolyzer system, which creates in-house cleaning products that are non-toxic and hypoallergenic, ensuring that the air in your room is healthy, clean and fresh.

Viceroy Snowmass is providing large bottles of reusable shampoo and conditioner that are cleaned and resealed to limit the waste normally associated with mass quantities of small-scale bottles.

The in-room laundry facilities, dishwasher, and sink are all stocked with an eco-friendly retail cleaning product.

Waste Management

We have a comprehensive recycling program that includes plastic, glass, cardboard, and paper.

Sales & Marketing

Green Meeting initiatives are available for groups and tailored to specific needs and requests.

Purchasing

Viceroy Snowmass has adopted a Green Purchasing policy that outlines our commitment to purchasing sustainable, eco-friendly products whenever possible.
