Update on Drouzin Le Mont Ski Resort
Many will be aware that political wrangling resulted in Drouzin Le Mont Ski resort being closed last season (December 2012 to April 2013) and there has been real concern about the possible permanent closure. Well there is some good news: The local council will open the nursery area for the 2013/14 season.
The two lifts immediately opposite the apartments (Teleski du Col & Teleski la Joux) will definitely be running, although we are still waiting for confirmation of when the lifts will open and close for the season.
There is also consideration being given to developing a infant play area that will include a tobogganing and tubing area: see link for more details and photos of possibilities. http://www.lebiot.fr/IMG/pdf/projet_col_du_corbier_2013_pdf.pdf
The Le Biot Mayor’s office has confirmed the “go ahead” for a new development at Drouzin le Mont containing a restaurant, shop, bar, locker room and toilets. Work is scheduled to start in September 2013 and is likely to be completed for the 2014/15 ski-season.
It will replace the current ticket office and toilet block and is the first phase of “Montagne Douce” (Translate Sweet or Fresh Mountain) which redevelops the resort gradually.
