Poma’s 80 years: a fantastic saga.
In 1936, Jean Pomagalski officially wrote the first page of a story that started two years before on the Eclose piste in Alpe d’Huez, as he registered, on March 6, the patent of his first ski lift, “a progressive starting disposal of a charge pulled by a cable moving at constant speed”.
Did he imagine that such invention would revolutionize the mountain world, transform the ski resorts, actively participate in the ski growth and democratization, and announce gondolas and other lifts? Did he imagine that the orientation and dynamism he would give to his company would continue, and that his inventiveness would last long after his death in 1969? Did he imagine that his strategy and business world vision, soon focused on export, would still be on the agenda 80 years later? Jean Pomagalski is and will always be one of the major figures of mountain world, a unique person who created a unique company, one of the names that remained in the mountain Pantheon next to others such as Emile Allais. Jean Pomagalski, alternatively visionary, inventor, globe-trotter and business man of genius, marked his time, and his name is still significant for us. The story of a man with capital M, since the company Poma is and will always be a great adventure lead by great men and great pioneers.

Snow Plan: a new ambition for the mountain?
On May 3, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, through its president Laurent Wauquiez, revealed from Lans-en-Vercors resort the expected Snow Plan, which will cover the entire Regional Council mandate, from 2016 to 2022.
But no question to put on the tracking shoes to follow Laurent Wauquiez, since he didn’t choose to hike on Beuvray mount, like Arnaud Montebourg, to announce a possible presidential candidacy, but rather made an appointment with the ski resorts and snow world actors, in order to state a concrete plan for the mountain. The choice of Lans-en-Vercors was not insignificant and let expect, or assume, part of the revealed plan, for the Vercors resort is among the ones that are not equipped with artificial snow, and couldn’t, last winter, produce white gold to make up for the lake of natural crystals.
Welcomed by Michaël Kraemer, the city mayor, representatives from almost all the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes resorts came to learn more about such expected Snow Plan…
