The off-season has been busy for Bergbahnen Destination Gstaad (BDG), the Saanenland’s beleaguered mountain railways company. From the purchase of Hamilton Lodge to a new collaboration with adjacent ski areas, a variety of news shows the company tries everything to reach a secure financial future.
Hans Schär, member of the liberal party FDP, was re-elected for a four-year term. He is the only representative of the Saanenland in the Grand Council. Politicians lament the low voter turnout of only 36.8%.
