In order to preserve the precious fauna and flora and the environment in which they evolve, special precautions must be put in place.
A rigorous protocol
This is intended to demand (and ensure) a high level of quality, safety and environmental protection from all our equipment, handling, development and production.
The ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 labels were obtained by the resort in October 2017 and April 2007.
The protection of the Grand Tétras by installing anti-collision devices on the cables of the ski lifts.
The use of organic products (oils, degreasers) in all our services.
Prevention of soil and water pollution.
A waste collection day is organised every summer on the slopes.
A highly committed and innovative environmental policy.
Limitation of urban development to protect the landscapes and agricultural areas.
Careful management of the water resources.
The water stocks and supply of the commune and the snow cannons are kept under close surveillance.
GPS management of the depth of the snow for grooming.
Increased air volume in the snow cannons for better snow production.
Any measure for development (buildings, paths, ski lifts) provides prior identification of “areas with naturalistic challenges” and relies on highly elaborate geographic information systems (GIS) to make the best decisions.
