Switzerland is an exceptional playground for winter sports, but many residents do not hesitate to cross borders to discover new areas. According to a recent survey conducted by the Belgian website European Best Destination among 110,000 holidaymakers, Alpe d’Huez was named the best ski area in Europe, followed by Brixental in Austria and Val Thorens in Savoie, which complete the podium. The Swiss resorts reach 5th place only with Crans-Montana, then further on Zermatt getting the 11th place… This shows the attractiveness of the resorts – especially – French! More than the reasons (budget, second home…) we are interested here in the consequences – sometimes dramatic – of such a choice in the event of a problem, such as an accident.
