The ski area has the ambition to offer a new experience in the heart of the slopes. A large-scale project that skiers and pedestrians will be able to discover from December 2021. By creating a real multi-faceted living space at altitude, this project is fully in line with the diversification approach of the Les Arcs / Peisey-Vallandry ski area.

 

 

ACCESS TO 2,138 M OF ALTITUDE IN ONLY 6 MINUTES

The replacement of the Vallandry chairlift by a new 10-seat gondola lift with all the comforts of home will link the snow front to a new living space in just a few minutes. Once at the top, beginners can learn to enjoy skiing in complete safety in a new dedicated area.
This area is composed of a “First glides” zone and a “First turns” zone with a ski lift. It is also possible to make “First descents” on the scenic trail of the Forêt des Pitchouns.
While the gondola provides access to numerous ski slopes in winter, pedestrians and mountain bikers can also take advantage of itineraries dedicated to the summer season.

 

 

A RELAXATION AREA PROMOTING THE LOCAL HERITAGE

Designed to offer skiers and pedestrians a contemplative moment on its panoramic terrace, the relaxation area also welcomes visitors for a break. This place combining noble and elegant materials has been designed to regain strength or to eat.
It also highlights the local heritage, thanks to the exhibition of traditional objects from the culture of Peisey-Vallandry, or the presentation of herbarium plates from the local flora.

TO DISCOVER THE MOUNTAIN ANIMALS

In the same vein, a Museum of Mountain Animals has been created on the first floor of the relaxation area and presents more than 30 species. This unique museographic space, with free access, aims to discover the mountain fauna and flora. At the same time, it raises visitors’ awareness of their protection. Designed and built in close collaboration with the Vanoise National Park, this museum is also a place for educational meetings with experts from the Park to go even further in the discovery of this mountain ecosystem.

 

 

A MODEL INSTALLATION

Photovoltaic panels are installed on the roof of the gondola’s arrival point in order to continue the development of renewable energy production in the area.
Also, the installation of a heat recovery system for the machinery is planned in order to reuse it within the installation. Rainwater is also recovered and redistributed for the non-drinking water needs of the site.
