Green Travel: Green Resorts: The Resort at Paws Up

| 11/10/2009 5:04:55 PM

Although many destinations around the world offer green hotels and resorts, the eco-conscious traveler always stays close to home to keep her carbon footprint smaller. Luckily for me, living in the middle of the country means I have a springboard for just about any destination in the U.S. Los Angeles is only a few hours further drive from me than New York City—although with the holidays coming (and stress mounting), I’d much prefer a trip to a countryside resort than a big city.

As I said in my blog about green ski resorts, I’ve been pining for the mountains lately. Cool mornings, quiet evenings and breathtaking views of rocky slopes—with maybe a touch of wildlife watching—are just what I need to balance out my life on the Plains. Because I want to enjoy the beauty of nature, it makes sense to stay at a place that works to preserve the environment.

The Resort at Paws Up is about half an hour’s drive from Missoula, Montana, on the western edge of the state. The resort offers a variety of outdoors activity all year, from fly fishing and mountain biking the summer to dog sledding and snowshoeing in the winter. Located in the largely undeveloped Blackfoot Valley of the Northern Rocky Mountains, the Resort at Paws Up offers visitors an unspoiled taste of Montana’s countryside.

This resort offers the basic amenities commonly found at green hotels—eco-friendly cleaning products, energy-efficient lights, linen reuse—but Paws Up’s commitment to the environment goes much deeper than that.
