LEVI IS AN ENERGY AND MATERIAL-EFFICIENT SKI RESORT

Tourism in Lapland is founded on nature. This makes it absolutely vital to consider the environment in every travel-related development decision that is made in the area.

As a recognition to our systematic work to preserve the arctic nature, Levi Ski Resort's environmental system has been awarded with the international ISO 14001 environment certification in 2018 as the first ski resort in the Nordic countries.

The consumption of electricity is a major cause of energy consumption in ski resorts. Did you know that:

  • Our target is to use 100% renewable energy sources, such as geothermal energy, in the future
  • Our second ambitious target is increasing the efficiency of our waste sorting and plastics recycling processes in cooperation with the local waste management services
  • We use renewable energy, such as geothermal energy
  • We heat our facilities using the surplus heat from snowmaking
  • We have invested in energy-saving snowmaking and slope grooming equipment
  • We do continuous landscaping which efficiently prevents erosion on the Levi fell
  • We use environmentally friendly, four-stroke snowmobiles and fuel additives which minimise fuel consumption. We also train our personnel on energy-efficient driving techniques
  • We monitor fuel consumption for each vehicle and slope grooming equipment
  • To save energy, we changed opening hours of the slopes to 9.30 am-7pm, which provides additional 30 minutes of natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting in the evening for approximately 1 hour
  • We offer a complementary charging station for our customers' electric cars at Zero Point
  • We are engaged in the TOBE Low Carbon project, which aim is to calculate and reduce the carbon footprint of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and its surroundings. The project started on 1.1.2019.
On a longer timeline, investments into sustainability also reduce costs, in addition to positive environmental effects, for example when the amount of required energy and materials is minimised and the reuse of waste is maximised. 
 
At Levi Ski Resort, our operations include year-round travel and activity services on the slopes, as well as various support services – all of it in a sustainable manner. Taking care of the environment is a natural part of everything we do and we carry our own responsibility of the wellbeing of our fell.
 
Other important environmental aspects are water consumption, fuels, waste management, reuse and recycling, as well as erosion. We continuously work to improve our operations in each of these areas to achieve an even greater level of environmental friendliness.
 
Our Management Team is committed to preserving the environment, and our  environmental team works to ensure that our environmental system is adhered to in all of our operations.
 
We ask you to join us in our work for the environment and treat the beautiful Lappish nature with respect during your visit.
