Derek Schmidt from The Wren, an East West Resorts managed property, recognized for Actively Green efforts

The countdown to the 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships has begun and four Vail Valley businesses have already crossed the finish line to become Actively Green 2015. The locals involved in these businesses may not race down the slopes as fast as Mikaela Shiffrin and Lindsey Vonn, but they’re innovators and game changers — leading the Vail Valley on our journey to become a sustainable destination.

One of those community leaders is Derek Schmidt, general manager of The Wren at Vail and co-chair of East West Resorts’ Eco-Cares team. Derek and his team began working on sustainability in 2008, and since then they have laid the foundation for creating a culture of sustainability in many properties throughout the valley.
