Water Conservation, Energy Conservation, Recycling, Composting and Stewardship are all part of the philosophy at Cooper Spur Mountain Resort. We care about where we live, work and play. We are committed to improving environmental performance in all aspects of our operations for today and future generations.
We encourage our guests to reuse bath towels and linens. A "DO NOT CHANGE MY LINENS" card is provided in each unit and can be placed on your bed if you wish to reuse your linens; otherwise our housekeeping staff will automatically change your linens, make up your beds, vacuum, and remove trash each day between 9AM & 11AM. In addition, we use CFL energy efficient light bulbs in every room. By using waterless urinals and low flow toilets in our Tavern, we save 30,000 gallons of water every year.
We make it easy for guests to recycle with convenient receptacles next to our garbage containers throughout our complex and we recycle behind the scenes; in our offices, kitchens and employee areas. We even recycle our restaurant oil which is converted into bio diesel fuel.
We endorse the charter of Sustainable Slopes which is committed to protection and stewardship. Cooper Spur participates in the National Forest Foundation by contributing to the Ski Conservation Fund which helps improve wildlife habitat and watersheds. Plus, we have Adopted a section of Highway 35 for litter collection.
The Restaurant at Cooper Spur and the Tavern have taken steps to minimize the impact on the environment by sourcing our food from local vendors who offer fresh, all-natural products. We have partnered with some of the area’s most popular local vendors. By saving our food scraps, we reduce food waste in our landfills and provide feed for some of our employees’ chickens. The restaurant then buys their eggs which are used in various dishes. We save all of the used coffee grounds for our compost piles.
National Forests host families and groups who return each year to their favorite resorts and campsites seeking outdoor adventure. The National Forest Foundation Fund supports this activity and makes it easy for visitors to give back to their favorite forests.
Cooper Spur Mountain Resort is proud to play a part in the National Forest Foundation Fund through the StewardShip Fund Program. $1.00 is added to each night’s stay for the National Forest Foundation Fund; you may opt-out of the donation at check-in. Your donation is used for projects like the improvement of the wildlife habitat, trail and recreation area enhancement, restoring watersheds, and more. Thank you for visiting the Mt. Hood National Forest.
