Sustainability on the mountain

#herzklopfafürmorgen

«Environmentally friendly, sustainable, authentic» - buzzwords that influence tourism companies operationally, strategically and also communicatively. Sustainability and ecology are not just trendy words for the snow sports region of Arosa Lenzerheide, but have had a high priority for years, especially in the technical area. We have anchored the topic in our strategy and are doing a lot to make the offer for our guests efficient and sustainable. We have already implemented several milestones, but much remains to be done.

SUSTAINABLE SLOPE PREPARATION

Right on time for the start of the 2020/21 winter season, we could take delivery of our first «green snow groomer». This makes us one of three Swiss snow sports resorts to set another milestone in sustainable slope preparation with the use of a «PistenBully 600 E+» from Kässbohrer.

We already had a first test vehicle in use in the 2019/20 winter season. According to the manufacturer, the «PistenBully 600 E+» is the cleanest and simultaneously the quietest vehicle in the snow. With its diesel-electric drive, the green PistenBully promises the lowest emissions, thanks to the massively reduced diesel consumption. We are convinced that this will further reduce CO2 consumption and thus contribute to a snow sports operation that is as CO2 neutral as possible.
