Caring for the Environment
We have been entrusted with the stunning mountain environment of Sauze d’Oulx and the beautiful, and sometimes rare, flora and fauna. We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and trust that while you’re enjoying your time with us you will as well.
- Take only memories and photographs and leave only footprints or ski tracks.
- Never discard rubbish except in the recycling or rubbish bins. Rubbish left on the mountains affects the extensive wildlife in the area, pollutes water courses and can increase the chances of wildfires.
- Never disturb or interfere with the wild animals.
- Do not pick wild flowers or plants.
We have an extensive recycling programme that helps to keep the mountains pristine.
Please use the coloured recycling bins whenever you can:
Yellow Bins are for plastic
Blue bins are for glass
Green bins are for general waste
Brown and orange bins are for organic waste
White bins are for card and paper
