Cinema: English films continue. Do look for the VO (Version Original) films being shown usually weekly. This Thursdays film (Thursday 1 March) is Clint Eastwood's "The 15h17 to Paris" It's the true story of three young friends on a tourist trip across Europe who thwart a terrorist plot on a train in France saving 500 lives. As always, the film starts at 8.30pm. Coming soon, Woody Allens "Wonder Wheel" set in 1950s Coney Island, and "I Tonya", a darkly comedic story of the American figure skater. 

 Polyvante Fondue Party wFondue 2018

Fondue Party Each Wednesday evening during The high ski season (February and the first week in March) the village celebrate in style. The Ski Monitors descend the Lanches with burning torches, and there there is an impressive firework display after which hot Vin Chaud is provided on the slopes.(With temperatures well below freezing the vin chaud is well received!) Then it was off to the Village Hall (Polyvalente) for a grand Fondue Party. The Echo des Memises played during dinner and then Mikael entertained us all with his accordion and lots of silly games for young and old alike. Some of the guests clearly felt that they hadn't had enough skiing during the day and decided to try their hand at a bit of "multiple skiing" A great night was had by all!

Mayor meeting 21012018

Mayor Bened village meeting 21st January 2018.Full Report.Latest News/Blog page. Thanks to FB.

January 2018. After the best Christmas and New Year snow on the mountains for a few years, the early part of January was a little disappointing with high winds on the mountain and rain down in the village. However the weekend of the 13/14 January was absolutely brilliant with great snow, blue skies and sunshine. Despite good snow conditions, the high winds experienced across the whole of northern Europe caused the closure of the lift system for the early part of the following week. But snow and more settled conditions have returned and reports from the slopes confirm that the skiing conditions are again very good but with wind at times. It is snowing heavily again today, Saturday 20th January. The forecast is varying for rain/snow over the next few days. Update 24 January, good skiing on crisp packed snow. Update 17th February 2018. We have had some good skiing, some rain, and snow!

End of an Era!

Saturday 28 October 2017;saw, according to those who were able to be there, the "party to end all parties" as JJ celebrated his retirement from Le St Nicholas Bar & Restaurant.Starting early in the day and continuing well into the early (or for some the late) hours of Sunday morning drinks and food were on the house and a great time was had by all Thollon.org would like to take this opportunity to wish JJ a long, healthy and happy retirement. 

We would also like to wish Cyril, who has been the chef at St Nics ,in recent years, every success as he takes over the ownership and management of business.

We understand the Bar and Restaurant will re-open after a short period of closure , on December 1st.

Thanks to RG for this report.


September 2017 The Hunting Season is underway. Take care in the woods!

Perhaps its worth thinking about a high vis collar or gillet (for the dog!)

A further indication of the growing links between Evian Resort and Thollon? 6 of our new Telecabine have been "re-branded" with some of the current Evian water adverts. - They look really good
