  2. 50 years Portes du Soleil

50 years Portes du Soleil

We have celebrated our official birthday on Saturday 17 January 2015!

From a dream to reality: in 1964, at the Lausanne Exhibition, a handful of forward-thinking individuals unveiled details of the first international ski area. France and Switzerland would unite to become the future Portes du Soleil ski area. 
50 years later and every single one of the links on the early plans have come into being...and there's more news to come...

Giant torchlight descent was planned to bring a fitting end to the day's festivities with a Happy Fifty Party !
