April News:  The ski resort

Regis Bened, the Mayor of Thollon has announced the renewal of the facilities for snow creation to be funded over 25 years with subsidies of 30% from the department, 30% from the region and with a municipal loan. Tenders are underway for 60 more snow cannons This winter we used 60000m3 of water. There are three reservoirs capable of making about 120000 m3 of artificial snow. This year we have been able to cover the whole of the Lanches piste with just 17 canons but this has required a great deal of effort. At night they rotate the use of the piste machines and then do maintenance in the daytime The New Restaurant The good news was passed on by the Marie at the end of March: the subsidies are agreed for the restaurant. The tenders have now been approved with the realization of the project planned for 2020.

 

The season closed with the UCAT Race and the water slide, and the British enthusiastically joining in the celebrations with this years theme of Peaky Blinders. Around 35 British visitors, and some Ex Pat residents joined in the fun.

Below the race winners Garage des Memises and the British "second place?" Team Meda Sport (Ketts Taira Andy) we understand that we might have translated "Les Perdants" incorrectly..... Great trophy, medals, cheese and chocolates were all appreciated as was the great atmosphere and the paella served for lunch. Thanks to the organisers and the many supporters for such a fun event. The race had a unique compulsory half way stop with a glass of wine or juice being consumed before continuing to the finish.
