Wallis adjusts rules for gifts

No more free skiing for politicians!

Valais politicians come to the slopes with big discounts or even for free. The outrage when this became known was huge. And will soon be a thing of the past.


With the “Snowpass Limited”, politicians can travel almost anywhere in Valais for free, for example here in Leukerbad.

The Valais government members and parliamentarians, who benefit from cheap ski subscriptions, should really enjoy it this winter. Because after this season it will be over!

The Valais government has adjusted the rules for accepting gifts, invitations and other benefits. It is now stipulated that the members of the Council of State and the State Chancellor may only accept gifts and other benefits in the exercise of their office “if they correspond to social customs, are of minor importance and are appropriate”, i.e. a maximum value of 300 francs to have.
