|The “critérium de la première neige” commits itself to an eco-responsible approach
The ecological question is nowadays central. Whatever the environment, whatever the
For this new edition 2022, the Critérium is rewarded by the eco-manif label delivered by the
region and which concerns the eco-responsible commitments for which an organization can

The Critérium de la première Neige, at the time of the Ecoresponsible energy.
The Val d’Isère Sports Club and its partner REVOLT Group will be setting up a unique installation for a major high-mountain event!
An eco-responsible energy system for the first time at an Alpine skiing World Cup event. To replace the classic generator running 100% on fuel oil, we are setting up an installation with a battery pack and a soundproof generator.
This system will be fully hybrid, integrating a thermal element (generator) and a storage and control element (battery pack). An estimated saving of fuel oil of more than 50%.
The Val d’Isère Sports Club is also part of the “Green snowflake” approach for which the Val
d’Isère resort is working. A labeling process that engages all the actors of the same territory

The submission of a report by the Club des Sports was done in order to participate in this
desire for change in the resort by positioning itself as an actor and not a spectator of these
changes. This complements and is part of our desire for improvement.
