Cables Cut On Old Jandri Express

Cables Cut On Old Jandri Express

Les 2 Alpes say that July 8th is the day that they'll cut the cables on the old Jandri Express ahead of the installation of the replacement of the resort's iconic lift in time for next winter.

The ski area has just completed what is now France's longest ski season, which ran, running for over 7 months straight, after Tignes, which had the country's longest season for many years, withdrew from its early autumn opening and continued to shorten its summer ski season.

The cutting of the cables means that for this summer, the high-altitude mountain area above 2400 m will no longer be accessible to non-skiers after July 7th.
"Rest assured though, your holiday at Les 2 Alpes this summer will still be one to remember! Our teams are already working hard to develop exciting experiences whether it be for those on foot looking to contemplate the mountains or those who can't wait to hit the MTB trails," a resort spokesperson reassured summer visitors.

The new Jandri Express, set to debut in December, will cut access to the peaks at 3200m above les 2 Alpes in just 17 minutes, less than half the time of the existing, 40-year-old lift. It will be of the fast, stable 3S lift type, with more spacious, more comfortable cabins.
