World Economic Forum: Swiss army called for clearing snow, keeping off protesters
No surprise that the hotel rates and taxi fares have risen 3-4 times for this week and the few retailers present on its central Promenade street are expecting robust business.
Surprisingly, 'sale' sign still dons quite a few shops, including some of Swiss designer wear and gears, which the retailers say is because of backpacker skiing tourists
continuing to throng the season due to peak winter conditions.
This time of the year also marks a rare occasion for this town when choppers are often hovering it and the roads are full of limousines, while the number of taxis obviously grow manifold.
Notwithstanding minus 10-20 degree temperatures, the elite of the world come in hoards every year to discuss world economy to this otherwise non-extinct town on the global economic calendar.
And when not discussing economy, these global elite can be seen looking for economical bargains on Promenade.
