A service that's been in place for the last 5 years, to help tourists find their way around town and, in the event of snow, to install chains or socks on their vehicles.

The French were not the only ones to arrive yesterday, other European countries also start their holidays this weekend. Among them, several hundred Danes, 844 this week, arrived by bus. More than a dozen coaches unloaded the week's guests yesterday afternoon in the centre of the village.
