Adelboden’s lift company (www.adelboden-silleren.ch) is developing on a ‘greener’ ski experience on its ski slopes by managing the amount of energy it uses.
Top of the list is public education, and along the sides of the piste from Sillerenbühl to Oey, guests will find seven information panels on all things environmental. If you study as you ski or board you can then enter a daily competition, based on testing your newly acquired knowledge, with prizes awarded daily.
The lift company is also buying in green power to runs its Aebi chairlift and every guest can make a contribution towards clean power too. At the Silleren base station, you can use your key card to make a donation of SFR 5.- towards energy from renewable sources.
Adelboden’s lift company has also invested in a new run maintenance vehicle. This is equipped with the latest engine emission technology (EUROMOT III – Regulation B) to ensure that even fewer particles and environmentally harmful substances are produced as it smooths the slopes.
Adelboden is also one of the Swiss resorts that uses clean water and air and no chemicals in its snowmaking. “Great care is taken when extracting water from the rivers to ensure the necessary residues remain in the water,” concluded a resort statement.
