We love Val d’Isere, but could the resort do more to be eco friendly? The free buses are great but what fuel do they use? What powers the lifts and water cannons? The appartment we are staying in is lovely but the windows are single glazed – we will comment to the owner – but please encourage better insulation for all buildings!

Hi,

Thank you for your comment. I invite you to read the article about our Snow Workshop, you will notice that our snow production respect the environment. Concerning the buses, since Fall 2019 they use a cleaner fuel. Also, we are still thinking about an alternative but due to weather conditions, it is quite difficult to use for example electric buses.
Concerning the appartments, we invited you to contact directly the owner.

Thank you for being concerned about the environment !
We hope to see you soon.
