Did the suggested route on 8 Jan but added in the Cherferie lift as Verdet was closed. Aside from that they had great conditions for it and had a great time! Just made it to the last lift home Plantrey with seconds to spare at All back safe and sound!! What a fantastic day skiing. There were a couple of piste closures requiring detours and a couple of map reading failures.

Now fully optimised for iPhone, Touch and Android Mobiles - just go to latania. Courchevel New Grangettes Gondola Opening in December from Courchevel Village up to La Croisette in this replacement to the old Grangettes will have 10 seater cabins offering a faster and more comfortable ride up.
The original plans for a mid-station for a gondola link with Aquamotion and the new apartment residence down there appear to be on hold for now. A different and cheaper and smaller capacity lift up from there may now be used.
The new 10 seater gondola will now arrive near the top of Tovets chair — an easier walk up to La Croisette area and take only 5 minutes instead of the current 8 minutes. The gondola base station will integrate in to the new base building which will have sports facilities and a running track on the roof! Work is expected to be completed by Dec and is now underway… Bozel to Courchevel Lift This has been talked about for as long as anyone can remember but seems to be gathering momentum now and will come to fruition.
The Torchlit descent this Winter and the chance to ski down for a long period did give this quite a bit of publicity. A study has already been carried out with a planned route from Bozel in the hamlet of Moulins, an intermediate station in St Bon Jairaz bridge and an arrival in Courchevel Village next to the Dou du Midi car park. The plan is to reduce traffic on RD91a road Bozel to takes 16 minutes — a gondola would take just 6 apparently and also link St Bon the administration capital of the valley in to the 3V system.
The new cabins will be a welcome change with a sitdown rest when doing circuits of this epic area.
