SUSTAINABILITY

To protect the long-term sustainability of the Roaring Fork Valley, we’ve designed our state-of-the-art mountain lodging with meaningful environmental consciousness. Whenever possible, we make it policy to lighten our ecological footprint and reduce our impact on the environment. From housekeeping practices and cleaning products to the organic coffee and homemade granola we serve at breakfast, every decision is carefully calculated to preserve Aspen’s natural environment. Below you will find just some of the many ways we strive to be as sustainable as possible.

We Take Energy Seriously

  • Heat in the parking garage is provided by two pumps that redirect the rejected heat produced by the water cooling system.
  • Our six hot-water boilers are coordinated — as opposed to operating independently — so that they can run more efficiently.
  • All inefficient halogen lighting has been replaced with compact fluorescents and LED lamps.
  • In each room, light switches that are not on the main switch utilize timers to ensure they are not left on. Exterior lights are on a photocell to reduce usage.
  • All rooms and public spaces have digital thermostats controlled by our building automation system.

Efficiency is in the Details

  • Our lobby fireplace is off in the summer and operates on a timer in the winter to reduce usage.
  • All soap, shampoo, lotion is dispensed by refillable pump rather than using traditional 1.5 oz bottles.
  • Guests choose if they would like their linens and towels changed daily.
  • All of our toilets and shower heads have limited water consumption.
  • Recycling bins are located in each room and throughout public spaces.
  • We use glasses rather than plastic cups in the bathrooms.
  • In the bar, wine corks are collected and sent to Re Cork where they become footbeds for Sole sandals.
