    Air Quality and Fuel Reduction

    Telski and Mountain Village have been praised for solving access challenges with the gondola and chondola, and Dial-A-Ride shuttle programs.  Biodeisel fuel is being tested in larger quantities for use on the mountain and is currently used in small quantities in snowcats, in golf course utility vehicles and for summertime mountain maintenance, while the Telski supports the planning and construction of a biodeisel plant to serve the surrounding four-corners region is being studied. The resort is investigating incentives for carpooling and visitor mass transit, and implementing fuel-reduction programs for snowmobiles, snow cats and all resort vehicles.
