On the 11. May the mayors of Ayas (Champoluc), Gressoney, Valtournenche and Zermatt agreed to finance a feasibility study for a lift that would link St Jacques to Valtournenche. This would link the Monterosa ski area to Zermatt and Cervinia, giving access to 650km of pistes, 50km more than the 3 valleys. The results should be known by the end of the year.

3V probably already worked out where to sneak an extra 55km of pistes in.

Hmm, stick a lift across from Brides-les-baines or La Tania towards La Plagne, and join those two huge areas together. 3V + Paradiski

There were attempts to do this donkeys years ago but the links would have to go through the Parc National de la Vanoise which is a no no.

Mmm, call it progress I suppose. I found the Monte Rosa area to be absolutely unique and personally, I would be sad to see it lose it's individuality if it were to be 'swallowed up' by Zermatt/Cervinia. Having said that, I would be back like a shot to check out the 'domaine'.

I'd like to ski the Monte Rosa area. Several friends have recommended it. I'm not convinced that a new super domain is needed, but I guess that this proposal will appeal to a particular market segment. Not sure if anyone will be able to afford the pass!
