What is ForeverProject?

Loon, and all Boyne Resorts, are committed to a goal of reducing carbon emissions to net zero throughout our North American operations by 2030. All partnered resorts together with the ForeverProject, will work to build a more sustainable tomorrow.

"Human driven climate change is an urgent issue for the world and most certainly for the snowsports industry. Though we have been a thoughtful steward of our resort properties over the last eight decades, it was clear to our team that we were not doing enough and fast enough if we are to truly help reverse the effects our carbon footprint has on the planet's climate."

Stephen Kircher, Boyne Resorts President and CEO

The mountains are not only our playground; they are also our home.

Situated in the scenic White Mountain National Forest, Loon is committed to being stewards of the surrounding environment and community. As a resort, we strive to implement sustainable practices to be better environmental advocates and protect what we love most. In order to preserve this majestic environment forever, we must all take an active role to protect it.

Together with these guiding principles below, we can achieve our goals to protect forever – and strengthen that bond which unites our community.
