Saint Lary will experience a turning point in its life on September 13, 1944 when a team will be appointed Provisional Municipal Commission with Mr. Vincent Mir at the head. After 3 mandates where this team leads this village to success, despite the end of the war with Germany, difficult economic periods are felt… The 4th mandate beginning on April 26, 1953 will be the beginning of a triumphant era. After several meetings of the Municipal Council, Mr. Vincent Mir decides to bring the project of creation of a ski resort before the Sub-Prefect. Project accepted on January 11, 1954.
From then on, the commune will embark on an epic of works: town hall square, opening of the nursery school, public garden and many others… But this will be especially the beginning of the construction of the departure station of the Pic Lumiere Cable Car.
