Sustainable development of the Saint Hugues / Les Egaux ski resort

For several years now, resorts have been trying to reconcile economic development with respect for the environment, both in the area of sustainable mobility (promotion of public transport, fleet of electric car-sharing vehicles, etc.) and in the area of reducing energy costs or creating eco-responsible tourist activities.

These initiatives are promoted by a label, Flocon vert, initiated by Mountain Riders. Nine French resorts have now obtained this label,

and Saint Hugues / Les Egaux, want to be the 10th resort to be 100% with the environment.
