Vail Mountain to Host Annual Clean Up on June 4th

Jun. 1, 2018

The U.S. Forest Service and Vail Mountain invite community volunteers to join employees for the annual mountain clean-up, scheduled for Monday, June 4. Volunteers will be provided breakfast burritos at Mid-Vail, compliments of Vail Resorts before the clean-up begins.

On clean-up day, all volunteers should meet at the base of the Gondola One in Vail Village by 9 a.m. with their own work gloves, water, sun block, hat, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes and clothing for inclement weather. Volunteers will be transported up the mountain at 9 a.m. via Gondola One, provided with trash bags and then will head to clean-up various areas of the mountain from Mid-Vail by walking and limited shuttles. Volunteers should be able to hike for several hours and descend and ascend uneven terrain. In the event of severe weather, a decision will be made the morning of the clean-up to either continue with the event or postpone.

All volunteers will need to complete and sign a liability release form in order to participate. Liability release forms are required and will be available upon arrival at Gondola One.
