Val d’Isère Lift to Re-Open After 6 Years

One of Val d’Isère’s iconic ski lifts, which has been closed for the past six years, has been renovated and is to reopen for the coming season, a resort spokesperson has said.

The Téléski des 3000 drag lift in the resort’s Solaise sector permits advanced skiers to reach the Leissières ridge that separates Solaise from the Le Fornet ski area and the Pissaillas glacier.

“The drag lift goes up to a lofty 2960m and the 76% slope here is only suitable for accomplished skiers,” the spokesperson commented.
