The project

At Courchevel, the Les 3 Vallées Company is organising major work to restructure and retrofit its ropeway equipment. After the installation of the new Ariondaz gondola lift in 2017, Les 3 Vallées renewed its confidence in POMA for the construction of the emblematic new gondola lift at Les Grangettes.

The new gondola lift was long awaited by Courchevel Village because the previous 43-year-old ropeway no longer met expectations in terms of comfort, safety and access. In addition to serving as the urban link between Courchevel Village and Courchevel 1850, the Les Grangettes gondola lift also provides a green trip to the slopes and a free sledge run that is lit up in the evenings.

The busy link and opened the door to ropeway peri-urban mobility in Courchevel, joined the following year by a second ropeway link, the Le Praz gondola lift.
