More News from Chatel   November 13th, 2009

The big news this week is that the private road up to our chalet has finally been resurfaced. We now have a lovely smooth tarmac road all the way to the chalet. It’s taken a couple of years of rather slow discussions between all the residents on the road and the contractors to finally all agree on costs and splitting of costs.
So hopefully with a new surface and better drainage it might be a little less icy during the winter.
The weather has continued to stay cold and we’ve had several little snow falls in the village, surely a good sign of another cracking winter to come !
I’m sure Woody, the new American owner of the Abondance ski area will be hoping so. He recently bought the ski station which has been closed for the last 2 years and is reportedly planning to use it for testing his state of the art snow cannons which work at warmer temperatures then any other machine currently available.
