Swiss Mountain eco-resort

Inhabitat:


The Whitepod eco resort located in the village of Les Cerniers in the Swiss Alps offers a private ski resort, mountain chalets and 15 geodesic-dome pods that offer low impact accommodations. Guests tour the resort by skis, snowboards, dog sleds or snowshoes in the winter and relax in the luxurious and efficient Whitepod domes. The Swiss adventure resort won the World Prize for Sustainable Tourism in 2005. The charming eco resort is located at an elevation of 1,700 meters (5,577 feet) in the Swiss Alps and features 7 km of ski slopes with private ski lifts. Guests are encouraged to explore the mountain through various types of winter adventures, including downhill skiing or snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, and guided hikes. The ski lifts are the only motorized systems, and the resort offsets their energy use by sourcing renewable energy. The resort is open in the summer as well, when guests can take advantage of warm weather eco activities, like hiking, mountain biking, climbing and more.
