Wildlife Habitat Protection- Stratton Mountain Resort

Vermont requires that two acres of land be offered as mitigation for every acre affected by a ski area’s development. Stratton’s 1999 Master Plan was nearly 18-to-1. The plan weighs the overall impact of facilities and human activity on wildlife and takes extraordinary steps to enhance habitat.

The area sponsored studies that provide data instrumental to understanding of how activity impacts regional wildlife. The area funded a $100,000 grant to launch a six-year radio telemetry study designed to identify key components of critical black bear habitat and determine how the black bear responds to changing land use.
