The les Arcs ski area is a 4,000-hectare sports ground, bordered by protected natural areas such as the Heights of Villaroger National Reserve and the Vanoise National Park. Taking care of our ecosystem’s health seems to us to be the right thing to do

Above all else, it must be understood that 60% of energy consumption in the les Arcs ski area is electric. Only 40% still comes from fossil fuels and are efforts are concentrated on that part.

Listening and watching

In 2012, the les Arcs ski area set up ENVIRONMENTAL OBSERVATORY, the object of which is to identify and follow the development of natural species such as the flora and fauna.  

The Observatory is involved in every new project in the ski area to consider the ecological recommendations for the development of new infrastructures.

Taking action

Here in practical terms are the actions taken by the les Arcs ski area:

- Automatically switching off the ski lifts’ power and heating during the night,
- Slowing down some installations when they are less used,
- Strategy to diversify its sources of energy supply,
- Partial energy autonomy of new installations by fitting them with solar panels.
- Using GTL for the piste-grooming machines
- 2M bees have chosen to take up  residence in the hives set up on the green roof of the Pré Saint-Esprit chairlift…


It must be understood that 70% of our ski area is above an altitude of 2000m, which enables us to enjoy optimal snow-coverage throughout the whole season

Producing artificial snow enables us to top up the natural snow-coverage and to ensure that it is possible to ski back to all our resorts from the first day the ski area is open to the last. It is produced after consideration and with respect for the environment. It is produced using only water, air and the cold. The water is collected naturally in our mountain reservoir, which allows us to meet over 70% of our needs. No products are added.
