Press kit winter 2021/2022 / Peisey-Vallandry 6 NEW Vending machines especially for you Not only does Les Arcs / Peisey-Vallandry provide free water fountains across the ski area, but also, at the top of the new Vallandry lift there is a vending machine with local products such as Beaufort AOP and cured meats from the Gaec Alpin at Peisey Nancroix. More amazing still are the ESF Peisey-Vallandry vending machines that distribute for free organic suncream from the Biarritz Laboratoires at the two children’s ski schools and in the sales’ offices. Making our visitors aware of the importance of the preserving biodiversity By signing up to the Vanoise National Park charter in 2015, Peisey-Nancroix ex- pressed its support for and its willin- gness to share in the Region’s plan for sustainable development which it continues to promote with true ambition. Every winter, in partnership w i t h the Vanoise National Park, Peisey-Vallandry orga- nises events for our visitors in order to raise awareness for the efforts being made to preserve the local fauna and flora. The ski area Les Arcs / Peisey-Vallandry is also committed to the creation of new spaces dedicated to the awareness of our biodiversity, such as the viewing platform at the Aiguille Rouge and the Mountain Animal Museum at the top of the new Vallandry gondola. Saving energy and street lights Peisey-Nancroix, which received the ac- colade of “Villages Étoilés” in 2015, continues to use low consumption bulbs for its street lighting which is turned off between 12 and 6am to ensure a better quality of darkness. This action not only helps to improve the quality of sleep and thus the health of our inhabitants and preserve biodiversity but it also reduces the financial cost to the collectivity. With the same aim, Landry recently fitted LED bulbs to its street lights and has decided to turn off the street lighting during the interseason in Vallandry. Developing renewable energies Today, 100% of the electricity used by the ski area is already provided by renewable energy (mostly hydroelectric power). Its aim is to self-produce 25% of its electri- cal consumption by 2030 thanks to re- newable energies. Reducing our carbon foot- print In 2019, Peisey-Nancroix installed two charging stations for electric cars oppo- site the Tourist Office. A plan to increase this number is currently under review and should be deployed in the coming years in the ski resort. The domain Les Arcs / Peisey-Vallandry is also trying to reduce its PARTICIPATE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
