NEW SKI LIFTS FOR WINTER 2019/20!

 

New ski lifts in the Portes du Soleil are always something to get excited about and this summer SERMA has been working super hard constructing two brand new 6 seater chairlifts in Avoriaz!

The first new chairlift will be replacing the current La Lechere 3 seater chair (the painfully slow chairlift that starts from the Lindarets bowl) with a high speed 6 seater. The replacement of the old La Lechere ski lift is also linked to the construction of a second brand new 6 seater lift called Cases taking you from the top of La Lechere on the French Avoriaz side to the top of Les Crosets – Champery on the Swiss side.

Not only will these two new chairs be much faster, but they will also create a brand new route from the Lindarets area to Les Crosets, tripling the French-Swiss connection from Avoriaz! The nearby Mossettes chairlift has until now been the main route taking you from Avoriaz into Switzerland, but due to exposure and wind it can often have closures during the winter.

 

Take a look at the situation of the two new lifts connecting Avoriaz to the Swiss side:

Details of these two 6 seater ski lifts:

The lower replacement lift La Lechere will allow an incredible 2700 people per hour and run at 5m / second! This is 900 people per hour more then the current 3 seater La Lechere lift!!

The higher new lift Cases, taking you up to Switzerland allows 3000 people per hour and also runs at a speed of 5m / second.

Chairlift Avoriaz Skiing

The old La Lechere charlift station currently being replaced in Avoriaz.

The positioning of the top Cases station at the top of Le Cases track has been carefully planned so that the chairlift is not visible from Les Crosets. The top station will be slightly below the ridge.

Construction zone

We headed up to the lindarets bowl this week to check out what’s going on with construction. We walked to the top of where the new La Lechere lift is being put in, it’s starting to take shape and we can’t wait to see the finished project! Below is a sneak peak of the pre-constructed new lift!

Both lifts are set to open for December 2019!

If you haven’t spent much time on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil before, you’ve got no more excuses about the length of time it takes to get there from Morzine. We’re definitely looking forward to speedy access to some of the quietest, widest and sunniest slopes in the Portes du Soleil… see you there!!!
