Latest on New Developments in La Tania

Prior to our comprehensive round up of everything new in The 3 Valleys which we’ll put out in October, here’s some news on the latest developments in La Tania.

The Moretta Village development on the car park area near to the gondola is finally going ahead. This is a large, complex, 3 year project with hotel, apartments, season accommodation, bar/restaurant, commercial and retail outlets plus a new snow front at the bottom of the red Moretta Blanche piste.

Rumours of Club Med (now owned by the Chinese) involvement have been replaced by Israeli investors and we understand that the plan is to upgrade the La Tania gondola rather than install an additional chairlift as originally outlined.

Work on access roads, parking (there will ultimately be a new underground car park) and preparation is to start soon but unlikely to have an effect on anything this Winter. As we guessed the replacement car park will be on the land created at bend in the road at the entrance to the village from the Alpinium car park dig out in Le Praz. Permission to dump the excavation of this development on the bottom section of the red piste and re-shape it has already been granted (access to the green run that crosses here will be improved too).

The new snow front in La Tania village is coming along – ultimately it will look like this and all will be completed by December:

Work continues…

First impressions are that the higher lift doesn’t go as far up as expected and the main piste is raised up considerably at the top of the development – it also comes closer to the apartment building than we realised too!

The initial plan – showing before and after

Meanwhile new, modern street lights are going up in La Tania and there are some temporary bins in place as the wall below the back of the Montana Hotel slips! Oh and The Christiana Apartment block is being painted on the village side via painters dangling on bungees! Attention to detail as always…
