Mountain clean up day

Every single one of us has thought about the impact we have on the world. If you feel like you want to make a difference, Bioskieur and Verbier are organising a Mountain Clean-Up day for everyone wanting to take away from the mountain what shouldn’t be there. Bring the kids, mates, parents, animals and everything inbetween on June 6, 2010. The meeting point is at the base of the Le Châble gondola at 9h30.


9: 30 AM: Welcome and defining cleanup sites, distribution of picnics by Reichenbach catering.

10 :00 AM: Bus ride up to Verbier and beginning of mountain clean-up (free bus ride to Verbier and gondola ride to Ruinettes for clean-up participants)

13 :00-15 :00 PM: Meet back at Médran for group photo, refreshments, organic food stands and information at the Mountain Riders stand. Enviro Quiz prize draw, with an organic cotton Picture T- Shirt ( and a pair of Faction skis ( to win!

15: 25: Bus ride back down to Châble from Verbier post office.

How does the clean-up work?!

It will be done in pairs as one person picks up recyclable waste and the other collecting non-recyclable waste. You don’t have to carry it in your hands though, you’ll be given gloves and a garbage bag. All litter will emerge when the snow melts away so you’ll get an impression of how much rubbish is left year after year.

Environmental information and entertainment:

Throughout the day, the environmental association Mountain Riders ( will have an information booth set up with all sorts of exhibits on environmental issues in mountain areas.

Don’t forget to sign up for the picnic on the Verbier Mountain Clean-up event page on Facebook or email! In case of bad weather, the event will be cancelled.
