New: Bird protectors on the Aiguille chairlift

These small orange rackets, fixed on the teleport multipair cable, have the following functions
to signal the presence of cable to birds that are particularly present in this area (Capercaillie and
bearded vultures, white partridge, …)
Based on a zoning defined by the GMO (the Mountain Galliform Observatory), the Sainte Foy Tarentaise ski lifts (S.F.T.L.D.) invest in 60 Birdmarks, installed every 5 metres approximately over a distance of 400 m.

You can visit this sunny area without skis to have fun learning all about marmots and raising children’s awareness about protecting the environment.

A short distance away, kids can discover sleeping marmots in an old milk cellar, symbolizing a burrow, which hosts a wooden sculpture of 4 sleeping marmots.
The entrance of the cellar is protected by a grid for safety reasons.
We count on you to leave the site clean!
