Sustainability on the mountain

#herzklopfafürmorgen

«Environmentally friendly, sustainable, authentic» - buzz words that affect tourism companies in terms of operations, strategy and also communications. Environmental sustainability is not just a trendy slogan for the Arosa Lenzerheide snow-sport region, but has ranked high in importance for many years, particularly in the technical area. We have embedded this topic in our strategy and do a great deal to provide our guests with an efficient and sustainable offer. Several milestones have already been celebrated, 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.
