Wetlands and Riparian Areas

Principle #7: Wetlands and Riparian Areas

We recognize that wetlands and riparian areas are crucial components of the alpine ecosystems in which we operate.

Principle:

  • Avoid or minimize impacts to wetlands and riparian areas, and offset unavoidable impacts with restoration, creation or other mitigation techniques.

Options for getting there:

  • Taking Inventory and monitoring wetland and riparian areas.
  • Limiting snowmaking and grooming equipment access to wetlands and riparian areas if snow cover is inadequate to protect them.
  • Limiting guest access to wetlands and riparian areas and vernal pools if snow cover is inadequate to protect them.
  • Engaging in restoration, remediation and protection projects.
  • Establishing buffers and setbacks from wetland and riparian areas in summer.
  • Managing snow removal and storage to avoid impacting wetlands and riparian areas as feasible.
  • Supporting or participating in research on functions of wetland habitats and riparian areas.
  • Using trench boxes to minimize impacts to forested wetlands from construction of utility lines
