Les 2 Alpes have announced that work to install three major new lifts will be carried out this summer ahead of next winter.
The lifts are part of a bigger picture of multiple long-term development projects involving its ski area, property and facilities which will together see more than 500 million Euros invested in the resort by 2023.
The bigger project this summer is the commencement of work on the new Pierre Grosse cable car which will link the Toura/ La Fée area at 2,100m to the glacier.
The new lift will arrive at a point at the top of the Signal chairlift at 3,100m.
In addition a new 8-seat chairlift will replace the quad chair in Les Crêtes area at 2,100m.
Finally a new quad chairlift will replace the triple chairlift in the Thuit area.
The aim is that with these new lifts skiers will be able to access new areas of the mountain and also spend less time queuing as they should mean that use of the second part of the Jandri Express (2,600m – 3,200m) will become less busy.
