24 heures, Fre - Chateau d'Oex's famous week-long ballooning event could be on the verge of bankruptcy, if rumours are to be believed, The chairman of the organization behind it, Sky Event, admits that 2006 was a bad year and could well show a deficit. According to Scherrer, the accounts are not yet completed, but poor weather in 2006 left the event financially weakened.

Meanwhile, today is expected to be a good weather day at the hot air balloon event, which runs this week and is traditionally one of the biggest tourist attractions in the region at the end of January.
