This is what happens when you build a chalet in the path of an avalanche.  The chalet belonged to a local mayor who, quite sensibly, rented it to tourists.  The Pyrenees had a very snowy winter which resulted in this chalet, plus several cars, being shunted down the mountainside by a slide at the start of February 2003.  No-one was in the chalet at the time but two people in the car-park below were buried but rescued without much harm by the local piste patrol and mountain police. It is the second time a chalet has been hit at this location. David George
