First great powder days

At the end of the day whatever preperations are made it's all about the 'white stuff'. A few big dumps, then the sun coming out, reminds you of what it's all about.

Tignes is Green Globe Certified

Tignes is the world’s first ski area to earn Green Globe certification thanks to efforts led by the area’s lift company, the STGM.

Tignes is one of 450 tourism companies across the world with Green Globe certification, and is the only ski area on the list. The resort is recognised worldwide for complying with strict international standards that encourage sustainable development in tourism.

Since 2008, the STGM has been ISO 14001 certified to reduce its environmental impact; more than 100 lift towers have been dismantled and removed from the ski area. Every year grass is planted to better integrate the ski runs into the landscape, to provide a more stable base for the snowpack, and to restore local biodiversity. The STGM regularly renews its bus fleet, offering an efficient and environmentally friendly bus service to guests, who are encouraged to leave their cars in the parking lot when vacationing at the resort. In 2013, the STGM created an environmental monitoring committee to measure and evaluate the effect new projects will have on the local landscape and to inventory species of plants and animals within the ski area.

GREEN GLOBE , what is this ?
Green Globe is an international certification program to award efforts made by companies in the tourism industry for their social, economic, cultural, and environmental approach. See www.greenglobe.com for more information
