Nature and ski resort, a theme that already has a long history in Val Cenis

– Val Cenis, 2nd largest commune in metropolitan France, is rich in protected communal territory (50% is located in preserved areas). Only 1% is devoted to the ski area.
– Val Cenis is located in the heart of the Vanoise National Park.
– Since 2014, the Val Cenis ski area has had a environmental observatory in order to better understand and thus better preserve the exceptional natural heritage of its territory.
– For several years conferences-debates on the theme of tourism and the environment are organized.

Val Cenis, 1st resort to receive the Flocon Vert label in the Maurienne

The Val Cenis resort obtained on Friday, November 26, 2021, the label “Flocon Vert” awarded by the association Mountain riders.

This is the beginning of a collective adventure to make Val Cenis a sustainable destination, reconciling economic activities and respect for the environment.

The label was obtained for a period of 3 years, with an intermediate audit. This is the beginning of a process whose objective is, of course, continuous improvement!

That’s why the 1st edition of the “Nature & ski in Val Cenis” event is taking place this winter.

Station highlights that mark the distinction

  • A phytodepuration WWTP (wastewater treatment plant) with local plants from Mont Cenis.
  • Support for agriculture through GIDA, diversification of agricultural activities and irrigation systems.
  • The Children’s House, a service to families committed to waste reduction, and offered to children with disabilities without differentiating activities.
  • The advance pricing system (the earlier the visitor buys their season or stay pass, the more advantageous the pass rate).

Morgane Gauché

Communication officer for the Val Cenis ski area (SEM Val Cenis).

Why this event, this winter?

This is an event that the Ski Area has been imagining for a few years now. It follows the conference-debates organized every winter in Val Cenis on the theme of tourism and the environment. The project was mature and the obtaining of the Green Snowflake label in November 2021 has reinforced our position. In fact, raising visitors’ awareness is one of the key themes that emerged during the working groups carried out as part of the Flocon Vert approach. The creation of this event is therefore one of the concrete actions put in place.

What are the expectations for the resort?

The resort has the heart to raise awareness and educate its customers (families and children in particular) to the local environment, because to know better is to respect better. It also wishes to make known all the actions that are carried out for the protection of the environment in Val Cenis for many years.

Do you already imagine the continuation?

I hope that this edition is just the beginning of a beautiful adventure! The goal would be to extend this “Nature & Ski” event over a full week for future editions. This first edition is a shorter version that will allow us to test the format and content to see if it meets the expectations of customers.
