€200m development for Val d’Isere (2017)

Plans were announced earlier this year, but were waiting for approval, which has now been given.

Traffic will be moved underground making the centre more pedestrianised, easier access to the front de neige will be created and many shops, restaurants and businesses will be relocated and re-homed in buildings in keeping with the overall style of the project.

Gondola Upgrade (2016/ 17)

“New gondola for 16-17 is the biggest news in a decade for Val d’Isère” The Solaise gondola is the last phase of the two-year €16 million redevelopment, reaching 2500m at the top.

The new gondola will include:

It will also have less of environmental impact as they have reduced the number of lift stations from 8 with 34 pylons to just 2 with 16 pylons. Also, as the gondola machinery is buried underground, this significantly reduces the noise impact on our little inhabitant friends who we share the mountain with.

New Beginner Area (2016/ 17)

At the top of the gondola will be the perfect pitch for learning first steps on skis and snowboard. They will have 3 magic carpets lifts and the ideal slope for beginners to build their ability and confidence before heading out to explore the rest of Val d’Isere.
