Flaine - Sixt link next 5 years Thursday, 02/05/2013, 2:00 p.m.
The mayor of Sixt Fer à Cheval Stéphane Bouvet and CEO Pascal Tournier were united in their support as they presented the draft Sixt to Flaine ski link and the building of 2,000 tourist beds. If studies and technical records are completed and if the financing of the transaction is agreed, the connection between the bottom of the slope of the Cascades in Sixt Fer à Cheval and the top of Flaine could be operational by 2018. This is certainly the wish of the common sizère and the ski lift company, DSG, who was signed an agreement to this effect in January 2013. The Public Meeting, held in the Salle des Fetes on Tuesday, April 23, was attended by about sixty people and was an opportunity for the Mayor Stéphane Bouvet and the CEO of Grand Massif Development, Pascal Tournier to confirm this common intent. Both sides have a period of five years to refine the project and bring it to fruition. On the one hand, the ski lift company, DSG, will construct three lifts (one gondola and two chairlifts) establishing a connection between Sixt and Tete Pelouse (initial costs estimated at 23 million euros). In return, the town will promote the construction of 1,600 to 2,000 tourist beds supposed to provide a supply of winter clientele. In this case, the ski area Vagnys would be abandoned whilst the beginner area, Salvagny, would be improved and strengthened.
"We already control the 13,000 sqm of land at the top of Salvagny which could accommodate 800 beds. Other land near the village centre may interest a developer. Eventually, 2,000 additional beds would generate a tax revenue of 300,000 euros for the municipality" said Stéphane Bouvet, who sees this project as a real opportunity to develop the village resort.
Synchronized implementation of lifts and the building program would secure the ski area for another 40 years. Conversely, if the investment does not come to fruition, the agreement would be for a further 12 years only.
"Day skier revenue will also be taken into account in evaluating the project. It will be useful to study the implementation of a parking area even if, in the current thinking, no particular solution has been preferred or discounted" said Pascal Tournier.
The people present at the meeting showed no opposition to the project overall.
