Sustainable Development by Valetmont
In order to reduce the ecological impact of skiing, we can try to reduce the use of natural resources necessary for the manufacture of alpine ski equipment.
For this it is necessary to make your equipment last as long as possible by maintaining it regularly. For your pair of ski boots, remember to dry them by removing the liner from the shell and then keeping it by closing the hooks so that the plastic does not deform.
At the end of the season, you can take the slipper out to wash it, some slippers are machine washable. Replace the inner sole of the liner as soon as it seems damaged to regain comfort immediately. It is also possible to replace the heels of plastic shells which wear out when walking on hard surfaces.
When your ski boots are at the end of their life, you can return them to us when purchasing new ski boots. We take care of recycling your ski equipment in partnership with the Tri-Vallées waste reprocessing company.
