For those who are familiar with the bowl in Les Gets, the news of an updated Ranfoilly lift will be great news indeed!
The Ranfoilly lift takes snow-lovers to the Ranfoilly peak, where begin two superb red runs, Tulipe and Sautenailles.
The old creaking 4-seater chairlift took 6:03 minutes to reach the top, and as the runs beneath are so popular, this would often lead to a bottleneck at the bottom.
So what do we have to look forward to? By December, work should be completed on the brand new 6-seater lift, which can zoom skiers up to the top in 4:50minutes of multi-million pound comfort!… Well, comfortable for a ski lift, anyway.
Here are some pics of the work already underway.
