Visitor Reviews of Valgrande-Pajares

Pedro Sánchez from Spain writes:

Otro año más con los retrasos burocráticos producto
De una mala política, redundante año tras año.
Cuando hay nieve no estamos y cuando estamos, no hay nieve.
Porqué hay que ponerse a preparar remontes el día que se inaugura la temporada?
Es lo mismo que ponerse a cocinar, cuando los comensales están sentados a la mesa.
