Whether it’s to reach the ski slopes, the hiking trails or simply to enjoy a moment of peace and quiet, accessing the summits by chairlift is always an exciting experience. Start at the foot of the Prapoutel or Pipay resorts and take a chairlift with pedestrian access to get as close as possible to the summits, or climb to the highest point of the 7 Laux resort, ski in, ski out.

Every season

its charm

Getting to the ski slopes in winter

Winter access to the summits by chairlift is disconcertingly easy, but it remains a magical experience. Rising to altitude in just a few minutes from Prapoutel or Le Pleynet, no longer feeling the ground beneath your feet and watching the resort recede into the distance, can leave you breathless. For others, gaining altitude will offer a magnificent panoramic view of the Grésivaudan valley and the Chartreuse massif. Don’t be surprised if you’re overcome by emotion.

Of course, pedestrians can also access the summits by chairlift, or at least get as close as possible. It’s a great way to get to the top of the mountain, or to join skiers for a convivial meal.

For beginners , access to the summits by chairlift allows them to reach the areas dedicated to them, and to access the Écureuil or Taupe itineraries. It can also, quite simply, avoid the difficult ordeal of the ski lift.

Summer mountain biking

In summer , access to the summits by chairlift is a must for fans of downhill mountain biking. Thanks to the chairlifts, they can easily return to the start of their itineraries and continue downhill.

Not a mountain biker, but a hiker? Taking the chairlift is a quick and easy way to get to the start of a hiking trail, or to get to places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to reach.

Access to high-altitude restaurants

Have you overcome your apprehension about taking the chairlift, or do you have none at all? Then take advantage of your chairlift access to the summits to enjoy a good mountain dish in a high-altitude restaurant.

In winter, you can enjoy the panoramic terrace and solarium at the restaurant des Oudis, accessible via the Biche blue run.
Whether you’re a pedestrian or a skier, you can also sample the cuisine at the Pincerie restaurant at the arrival of the Pincerie chairlift at Le
Pleynet, or the Cortillets restaurant at the arrival of the Bouquetins TSD at Prapoutel.

An experience not to be missed. Eating in a high-altitude restaurant is also part of the vacation experience. Enjoy a mulled wine in a deckchair too.
