1650 Luge Run – Opening Postponed plus latest from S3V
The “Moriond Racing” Luge run in Courchevel 1650 was due to open on Thursday but this has now been postponed until further notice due to Covid cases rising. Announcement will be made on the opening in due course.
S3V have been in contact with us with regard to lift closures in Courchevel and their staff shortages due to Covid infections and contact cases – they’ve been desperately trying to hire new staff and get cover but this is proving to be difficult and causing them significantly higher operating costs. They also remind us that they have 97 out of 102 pistes open, so the ski area available is just about maximised even if a few lifts (most of which are duplicated in their target areas) are closed.

Finally the image below shows our “elected officials” presenting the plans for a much smaller Tourist Office in La Tania with some new Public Toilets and room for a commercial business – somewhere that sells cigarettes perhaps? The Tabac no longer sells them!
