As all of the objections have been lifted, the development work in the sector Meilleret of the Diablerets ski resort (VD) will be able to begin once the federal and cantonal validations are received. Thus Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic Games Organizing Committee’s agenda will be respected, and the events programed for January 2020 will be able to take place. As early as January 2019, it will be possible to organize international test events, such as a Women’s FIS European Cup.
The sector’s development is part of the resort’s athletic and touristic development strategy. Community authorities were able to accelerate the project’s realization thanks to the IOC’s attribution of the Youth Olympic Games to the canton of Vaud in 2015.
Proof of the positive impact that athletic events can have, when they are incorporated in the long-term development of regional economies.
