A group of young residents is planning the installation of a wakeboard facility on the storage lake up on Hornberg (see our last article). Securing the finances for this project has now been achieved with the help of sponsors, the municipality of Saanen and a crowdfunding.
When the crowdfunding started, various sponsors and the municipality of Saanen had already confirmed their financial support. Another CHF 30'000.– were required, though, in order to realise the wakeboard park on the Hornberg.
Planning is in full swing. Apart from technical details the team also needs to work on additional parts of the project, such as the bar, storage facilities, a rental concept etc. As soon as all the snow will have melted the work at the lake will begin.
Opening hours of the facility will be mainly on weekends. If the demand will be high enough, the facility may be open on a daily basis throughout the high season.
