As residents and neighbors, we are committed to helping our mountain resort communities thrive by partnering with critical organizations to make an impact.​

In the Past Year​







Our EpicPromise Community Impact grant program is one of the many ways we partner with, and invest in, the communities in which we operate. Relationships built with community leaders allow us to understand the unique needs of our neighbors and the resources required to address them. Team members living in each resort community help decide which organizations receive grants and ensure that contributions are making a significant impact.​

“We see Vail Resorts as a neighbor, and their financial support and partnership is a testament to the company’s willingness to tackle our community’s challenges alongside us. Whether it’s helping to support our community’s mental health needs, supporting our housing efforts, or helping us to improve access to the sport, we know that as a major employer they can help us with our community’s unique needs.”​

– Diego Zegarra, Park City Community Foundation 

We want to help address critical need in the communities where we operate. Cash Grants are offered through a request for proposal process that opens in August and closes in September

Last year, we awarded $9.5 million in cash and product grants to nonprofit partners across North America.

Honoring Unceded Territory

Whistler Blackcomb operates on the unceded territories of the Lil’wat Nation and Squamish Nation, who have lived on these lands since time immemorial. The Whistler Blackcomb team has deep gratitude for the opportunity to live and work in this beautiful place, colonially known as Whistler.​

We are listening and learning, and continue to work as partners with the First Nations through programs including Indigenous Life Sports Academy, Indigenous Women Outdoors, and others.

Childcare is a critical need, not just for our mountain communities, but across the United States. We are working to be part of the solution by piloting childcare services at several of our resorts, including Vail Mountain, Breckenridge, Beaver  Creek, and Okemo. We also directly support childcare services and critical needs in our mountain communities through direct grants.​

Affordable Housing​

Affordable housing is a nationwide issue that resonates deeply within our mountain communities. We are aggressively pursuing new affordable housing on the land we own, as well as company leases in existing developments, so we can make housing more accessible and affordable for our team members. Each year, we work to increase our number of affordable housing units for our employees, including through recent investments at Park City Mountain, Whistler Blackcomb, and Okemo Mountain Resort.  Additionally, we are proud to support non-profits in our communities working to accelerate affordable housing efforts.
