Savoie Mont Blanc, which brings together 112 resorts, “requires” a date for the opening of the ski season

#It is for her an “absolute emergency”. The #Savoie #Mont #Blanc #Agency, representing 112 ski resorts in #Savoie and #Haute-Savoie, on #Thursday “demanded” from the government a date for the opening of the winter sports season. “Stop procrastination! », #Write #Vincent #Rolland and #Nicolas #Rubin, co-presidents of the territorial tourism promotion body,
in an open letter to the government.

The latest statements by #Minister of #Health #Olivier Véran on #Tuesday “left us once again in total uncertainty, with no visibility for #January, de facto impacting potential reservations in #February,” they point out.

“#Sacrificed for the #Christmas holidays, we refuse to be so for those of #February”

“#This is no longer tenable for the 112 resorts of #Savoie and #Haute-Savoie which represent two thirds of #French skiing and all socio-professionals and employees as well as the entire economic chain which depends on it”, add the co-presidents .

“#Sacrificed for the #Christmas holidays, we refuse to be sacrificed for those of #February”, they warn, adding “it is in the face of a proven lack of equity and an absence of logic that the mountain loses confidence in the government” .

A reopening on #January 7?

The date of #January 7 had been brought forward for the reopening of the ski lifts at the end of a videoconference on #December 11 between the government and elected officials and mountain stakeholders. #But she could walk away in the face of increased circulation of the virus.

The resorts have developed protocols adapted to the health situation and they “have lost up to 85% of their attendance and are with hotels, cafes and restaurants the main sacrifices of the health crisis”, estimate these mountain actors. .
