Pyrenean ski resort to be revived

The Municipality of Vielha in the Spanish Pyrenees has given the go-ahead for the construction of more than 500 apartments and 1,700 parking spaces in the ski resort of La Tuca. The resort was forced to shut down in 1989 as the lack of snow meant it was no longer viable. But now the ski resort is to be brought back to life with the new project.
The consent of the three small hamlets of Betren, Casarilh und Escunhau, whose territory is affected by the plans, is still required, and citizens' meetings have been scheduled to discuss the project.
The piste area is to comprise 40 hectares, half of which can be covered with artificial snow. Investments are expected to total around €45 m. If everything goes according to the investors' plans, construction work could get underway within the year.
