Previous visitors to Val Thorens would probably have visited a little old rickety lift at the bottom of Val Thorens resort. It is a four man chair lift which runs off an old generator that takes you high enough for you to ski down to the bottom of Boismint and Moutiere lifts. If you ever ski the off-piste area called Lac de Lou then you would have most likely used this lift to get back to the resort.
You would also probably remember how looooong it takes, I’m sure I have lost half a season on that lift!
There is a new lift coming this season (2014/15) that will replace this old timer. Building is well on the way to be open for the coming season as you can see by the photo bellow.
3 Cheers for Val Thorens, hip hip….
