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.
