Aware of its impact on the environment, the Morzine ski area has been investing for many years to limit its environmental impact.
All our earthwork on the slopes is replanted with grasses adapted to the mountain environment, which is perfectly suited to the wildlife and the cattle that graze on the domain.
Two protected areas for mountain galliformes such as the black grouse have been identified in the ski area. They have benefited from work to make the environment more favourable to the development of these species. In addition, a plan for the visualisation of dangerous cables has been signed with the Mountain Galliformes Observatory. We are therefore equipping these cables with visual devices to avoid collisions with birds.
In collaboration with the National Forestry Office, every cut of wood made on the ski area is accounted for. Compensatory measures are put in place and trees are replanted on areas with local species such as spruces, firs and larches.
In collaboration with the Summit association, an awareness campaign concerning the problem of waste in the mountains is in place in the ski area.
Our snow groomers are now equipped with an ultra-precise GPS system that allows us to know the amount of snow to the millimetre. This innovative system allows us to limit the movement of snow and to adapt the production of snomaking. The result is a significant reduction in our energy consumption. In addition, this winter our machines are running on eco-polar GTL fuel, which is biodegradable and non-toxic and limits pollutant emissions.
