Warning Alert from S3V regarding work on the ski area

We received the following warning / alert from S3V this morning regarding skiers on the ski area while a serious amount of work is going on preparing the slopes for next Saturday. Lots of machinery, including hidden cables and obstacles in place so the ski area is officially closed to those hiking up and getting in some early turns.

In order to prepare the ski area for the opening on December 8th, we currently have 21 snow groomers, 15 snowmobiles plus other councli heavy machinery working on the ski area.

Some groomers are equipped with cables that are not always visible (with  up to 1 km of cable unrolled and powered by heavy duty machinery some of which may be under the snow).

We are currently facing a growing number of cross-country skiers / ski tourers who do not understand the risks of this work in progress and are preventing us from working normally.

We remind everyone that the ski area is exclusively reserved for the Ski Area Management Company to prepare for the opening day. Thank you for respecting this work in progress by not practicing ski touring on the ski domain.
