CHOOSE GREEN

The official state question of New Mexico is “red or green?”

We choose green.

We hope you will too.

Choosing green means that we are pursuing business practices that are not only environmentally friendly, but also promote a more resilient and robust community. The mission of Taos Verde is to identify and pursue the practices that will realize that objective. In pursuit of that goal we have identified the following five core areas of focus: energy, stewardship, water, waste, and engagement.

Awards

Although we have a long ways to go, we have recently been recognized for our sustainability initiatives. So far we have received the following accolades:

  • Taos was awarded 2016 National Ski Area Associations Sustainable Slopes High-Efficiency Snowmaking grant.  Through this grant our friends at HKD Snowmakers will award us five low-energy, high-efficiency snowmaking guns, which will help bring us that much closer to our energy efficiency goals.
