    If you're thinking about going to the massif

Le Massif has reportedly lost 17 millions $ over the past 10 years (ski operation only) and have made some cutbacks earlier this season (closing lifts and one chalet monday to wednesday).

    Not a big surprise, but at least confirmation that it's for this summer. Another reason they need to do this this summer is that the current loading area of the Bonnie is right where they want to build the new hotel. This was sent to homeowners: This outreach is to share information on a...
