Once again the beautiful, unspoilt Haute-Maurienne is under threat from being linked with the ski resort of Val d’Isere. The “Disneyland des Alps” and the vested financial interests of huge companies and their shareholders is being placed in front of the irreversible destruction of an environment appreciated for it’s peace and quiet. Visitors to Bonneval, one of the prettiest villages in the Alps, go there for the authenticity and natural beauty. If this project sees the light of day this will be irrevocably changed. I hope that Mountain Wilderness and other groups will vociferously oppose this myopic project.
