WE ARE GREEN
We love mountain, we are immersed in an environment of wild and unspoiled beauty, in a nature that asks us nothing but to be respected. La Thuile is a special place that we want to preserve for our well-being and that of future generations, to contribute , in our small way, to save the planet and guarantee better living conditions for everyone. We are so aware of this important responsibility that we have adopted an eco-sustainable approach in our company.
A path that sees committed FUNIVIE PICCOLO SAN BERNARDO in the rationalization of energy and water resources through the use of a large water collection basin to provide for the planned snowing, the use of two turbines hydraulically driven to produce electricity, as well as of a photovoltaic system installed in Les Suches.

a water resource for fire prevention.
