Ensuring sustainability and accessibility of Nordic Snow Sports across Europe
2022 - 2025
The main objective of SIEPPUR is to develop and implement concrete measures to enhance the sustainability of snow management in Nordic snow sports. Based on an initial assessment of current practices in selected snow sports venues, SIEPPUR will identify best practices for minimising resource use and improving sustainability governance in snow sport organisations. Based on modeled snow climatological scenarios for venues across the continent, the project will develop new knowledge to advance the different dimensions of sustainable snow management practices from production, storage, transport, grooming to handling. The project will translate the new knowledge into implementation roadmaps for different geographical circumstances. SIEPPUR will provide practitioners with helpful management tools and techniques to monitor and minimise water and energy use and to optimise the efficiency of snow management.
