Saturday April 6, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

A demonstration against Brexit has been staged by French ski resorts.



The demonstration and message of solidarity took place in Bourg St Maurice on Saturday morning.

Representatives from French ski resorts around the town took part in the anti-Brexit demonstration outside the Eurostar terminal - the entry point to many of the major French ski resorts.

Members of the public joined in too.

Some of the resorts involved were Tignes, Val d'Isere and Les Arcs.

This week there has alos been a British Week in Les Arcs:

The idea was to send a message to both the UK and the rest of Europe that perhaps it is not too late to reconsider Brexit.

British clients are important to many French ski resorts and there are fears for the future.

Already some UK operators report bookings sharply down for next winter.

"The Tarentaise is an international region with over 250,000 British skiers coming out every winter and a large community of British residents, many of whom are now requesting French nationality," said Michel Giraudy, Mayor of Bourg Saint Maurice Les Arcs.

"There is concern about the impact Brexit may have over the tour operators, the number of clients that will come to visit the local ski resorts, and the impact that will have on local businesses."
