It looks a bit ugly at the moment but as you can see work is well under way for the revamp of Val D’isere’s Solaise area.

The developers are busying shifting earth and the image shows one of the new carpet escalator lifts beginning to take shape.

In all Val D’isere Telepherique plan to install a new high speed 10-person telecabine, and two new carpet escalator lifts. These will be served by a new children’s area and building.

The new lift will be able to uplift up to 3600 skiers per hour to 2550m in just 7 minutes. Each cabin will also have WIFI enabling skiers and snowboarders to access the internet and maybe even upload there pictures and videos whilst on the mountain!

Check out the video link below and get an idea of how the finished project will transform the Solaise area.
