 At Cheyenne Mountain Resort "going green" did not start when the term was coined. For years, being responsible stewards of everything we touch has been important to our 500 plus employees. Positioned in a gateway city to the Rockies, we love our pure air, water and pristine environments and are doing all we can to preserve this natural beauty. From reducing, reusing and recycling to using eco-friendly products to reducing utility consumption, we are taking sustainability seriously.

In efforts to "Do our part" in protecting our environment, Cheyenne Mountain Resort has taken many steps to ensure that we act responsibly when providing services to our guests and the local community, focusing on ways that we can conserve valuable resources and lessen environmental impact. Cheyenne Mountain Resort has a long established "Green" committee, comprised of staff members and directed by members of our Executive Committee. Our Green committee has been instrumental in developing/implementing our current green strategies.
