Telemix® Les Jeux
Installed in 2013, this TELEMIX® with fifty-four 8-seater chairs and twenty-height 10-seater cabins is a world first.
The Alpe d’Huez Tourist Development Company (SATA) places innovation and comfort of customers at the heart of its decision-making for the planning and development of its ski area.
SATA has entrusted POMA with the production of the Les Jeux Télémix®. It replaces four surface lifts (Les Jeux, Lac Blanc, Grand Babar and Poutran) for a more comfortable, faster, more efficient ascent and reduced visual impact.

For the project
Safety, comfort and design
The carriers are designed to provide optimum comfort and safety for users with individual safety bars on the chairs and detection of lowered safety bars at the station exit. This TELEMIX® offers a neat and tailored appearance, with its two-colour chairs in SATA colours.
A capacity of 3900 people/hour, functioning with groups of cabins to facilitate access to groups and ski classes, slow speed for easy boarding along a straight line, new platform signage for an easier route, more comfortable boarding with the introduction of a loading conveyor belt with a “variable attitude”, etc. All these innovations ensure simple and accessible carefree customer usage.
Maximum availability of the system is what is wanted for this key area of the ski resort. The proposed technical solution optimises the results by integrating a tandem bimotor drive group and the double rotation assembly of the two end sheaves.
The TELEMIX® is functional and perfectly integrated into the site, and has enabled the dismantling of 62 towers and the removal of 10 km of rope, for a sleek and upgraded ski area.
Innovative techniques to raise the stations and pre-fabricate the subassemblies have enabled the construction period to be significantly reduced. Combined with waste and transport reduction (- 30%), the overall environmental impact of the construction site is thus greatly reduced.
