USFS and Colorado Parks and Wildlife Veteran, Rick Cables Hopes To Contribute To A More Sustainable Future
Vail Resorts appointed a veteran of the U.S. Forest Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife as vice president of natural resources and conservation, which will put him in charge of managing land use, water and wildlife resources for the company's resorts. The appointment comes as Vail and other ski areas work with the U.S. Forest Service to expand year round recreational activities on lands they lease from the agency.
"I am excited to begin a new chapter in my career," said Cables. "I have always been incredibly impressed with how Vail Resorts looks to balance their growth objectives with a commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability. Their approach is perfectly aligned with my own vision for how we can create a more sustainable future for our forests by bringing together all of the important stakeholders and developing innovative approaches to protecting our natural resources."
