€17m infamous Swiss ski restaurant destroyed by fire

The Famous Botta, a cube-shaped restaurant, located at the Glacier 3000 in Les Diablerets, was destroyed by a fire. The owner, Formular 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, is reported to be questioning if the cause of the fire might be arson.

It’s not yet known if the cable car that serves the highest ski sector in Les Diablerets, escaped damage, we understand structural engineers are currently carrying out tests. Hopefully, the tests will show that the cable car can continue to operate, as to lose such an import and high-altitude section of the ski area, would be a major blow to local tourism, just at the time when these mountain villages receive visitors.
