Mount Snow Resort in Vermont has agreed to pay $95,000 to settle claims that it violated hazardous waste handling rules. In 2008, the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources claimed that Mount Snow had disposed of hazardous waste through evaporation and without certification and violated waste storage rules. The claim also stated that the area had lacked emergency preparedness and annual training for employees.

Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell alluded to these matters as “serious”, but also made a point to mention the ski area is making significant strides and measures to address and ratify all problems.
