As Sugarbush Ski Resort opens for its 45th season, skiers and snowboarders are discovering a healthy difference when they come in from the slopes. Sugarbush has partnered with Verilux,Â® The Healthy Lighting CompanyÂ, to bring the benefits of sunlight indoors during dark winter days and long winter nights. The partnership is part of SugarbushÂs commitment to a quality guest experience while adhering to strict environmental standards. Verilux, now the official lighting supplier to the Resort, specializes in energy-efficient lighting solutions for better vision, health and well-being.
ÂOur number one priority at Sugarbush is providing an excellent guest experience while maintaining our commitment to the environment and Verilux products speak directly to those aims," says Adam Greshin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sugarbush Resort. ÂVerilux lighting fits the healthy, active lifestyle of our clients and meets their high expectations for quality, making Verilux the ideal partner.Â
Verilux products will be placed throughout the Resort beginning with the Valley House Lodge at the base of Lincoln Peak and the Sugarbush Day Care Center. Following that, Verilux lighting will be installed in the Sugarbush Inn and Conference Center and the Gatehouse Lodge.
ÂWe are proud to partner with a company that has attained an international reputation for quality experience and environmental excellence. These values mirror our own commitment to health and environmentalism,Â says Nicholas Harmon, President, Verilux, Inc.
Verilux lighting produces a bright, white light that closely simulates sunlightÂs balanced spectrum, bringing the ÂnaturalÂ feeling of sunlight indoors. The eye works most efficiently in natural light, reducing eyestrain and fatigue associated with incandescent or fluorescent lights. Additionally, Verilux products are energy-efficient and long-lasting for minimum environmental impact.
Endorsing environmentally sensitive lighting is part of SugarbushÂs broader mandate of environmental stewardship. Sugarbush participates in the Sustainable Slopes program, sponsored by the National Ski Areas Association. Sustainable Slopes is an opt-in program that promotes environmentally friendly programming and practices at mountain resorts. Sugarbush was selected as one of only three finalists for SKI MagazineÂs 2003 Golden Eagle Award for Overall Environmental Excellence. The Resort also received a GovernorÂs Award in 2002 for Environmental Excellence in Education and Outreach.
Since opening in 1958, Sugarbush Resort has been favored by outdoor enthusiasts seeking a quality outdoor experience in pristine surroundings. Located in the Mad River Valley, each season brings different ways to enjoy the fresh mountain air and natural splendor of the region. SugarbushÂs newest initiative, The Lodge at Lincoln Peak will be completed in Fall 2005 and will include a state-of-the-art spa, fitness center, several restaurants, a wine cellar, conference facilities and 141 luxury vacation residences.
