France – Loudenvielle Peyragudes – 2019

Skyvall Gondola Lift

The “Skyvall” gondola lift is a link between the village of Loudenvielle, with its lake and its recreational spa, and the ski resort of Peyragudes. Since the summer of 2020, it has helped improve the year-round appeal of this beautiful valley in the Pyrenees.

More about

The project

The valley lift has proven itself to be the ideal solution to support the development of Peyragudes' 4-season activities and to facilitate travel between the city of Loudenvielle and the skiing area while reducing the environmental impact.

In winter, holidaymakers can access the ski slopes in just a few minutes, regardless of road conditions, from Loudenvielle.

In the summer, the gondola lift will allow hikers and mountain bikers to go up and enjoy the specially designed tracks and trails. From the station, holidaymakers descend to the centre of the village of Loudenvielle, a stone's throw from its magnificent lake.

POMA, innovation

for the project

Sustainable

transport

Skyvall is seriously greatly reducing the traffic on the road to the Peyresourde Pass, which will seriously reduce CO2 emissions in the valley (an estimated reduction of 274 tonnes of CO2, equal to more than 89,000 car trips/year).

PRM Access

The departure station has an inclined ramp which makes it easy for passengers with reduced mobility to board, as well as mountain bikers.

4-season

mobility

The valley elevator allows hikers to quickly reach the numerous hiking routes, and allows mountain scooters and mountain bikes to enjoy the new, specially marked downhill routes.

Carriers stored

in the station

The gondola lift has an in-station carrier storage system; the cabins are protected from bad weather
