The world's largest ski resort operator, The Compagnie des Alpes, has signed a €38m deal with lift company POMA to supply five new gondola and chairlifts to Val d'Isère, Tignes, Méribel, La Plagne, and Serre Chevalier ski areas in time for next winter. Installation for all five – which will include some models that are the first of their kind in France - will start this summer with opening planned for December 2018.
At Val d’Isère, the La Daille gondola lift, gliding above Oreiller Killy, legendary piste for the Alpine Skiing World Cup competition “Criterium de la Première Neige”, will be replaced by a new high-performance gondola. It will be the first in France to be equipped with 50 Premium Symphony 10-passengercabins and one VIP cabin. These latest generation cabins were designed by the Italian designer Pininfarina.
This summer, large-scale building work will begin on the sector, which is situated at the entrance to Val d’Isère: the “la Daille” 4-seater gondola lift will be replaced by a cutting-edge ski lift. Heated seats, more space inside, panoramic view, sliding doors… Each cabin will be able to accommodate 10 people at a time, taking the overall passenger transport rate up to 2,800 people an hour – compared to 933 today. The Etroits ski lift will also be removed. The total cost is 10 million euros.
Previously, it would have taken around 9 minutes to get to the top of the la Daille gondola lift. From winter 2018/2019, you’ll save precious time on the slopes as the climb will take only 4 mins 30 seconds.And environment-wise, 40 pylons will be removed in the la Daille sector under the remit of our Green Globe commitment.
