A heads-up for Mont SUTTON’s day of celebration

Mont SUTTON’s ‘birthday’ is not being held at the weekend, but on Tuesday, December 17. We wanted you to know about it though because visitors can ski all day for a discounted price of only $17. The ski centre has been in business for almost six decades and following the tradition in previous years, Mont SUTTON’s staff will be dishing out slices of birthday cake in the main chalet (1pm).
