Courchevel News: Gondolas for sale, Le Praz lake dredging, Luge open, Plantrey lift this Summer, Creux Noirs replacement & Pilates…

Gondolas For Sale!
This Spring the Gondolas from the Praz lift will go on sale and there are still some of the old 1970 gondolas from the Fôret lift (also in Le Praz) on sale at €4800 including tax.
All the Grangettes gondolas have now been sold.
For further information contact Sophie Pautot at

Summer in Le Praz
The lake in Le Praz will be dredged this Summer from 23rd April as work continues on the Alpinium site for opening in December 2019.
With the Praz gondola being replaced there will be no lift in Le Praz open this Summer but the Plantrey lift will be open (great news for bikers to get back to La Tania with no uphill required!).

1850 – 1550 Luge
The toboggan track from Courchevel 1850 to Courchevel 1550 is now open (just rent a sled and it’s free to use as many time as you like).

Creux Noirs Lift
Due to cracks in the base of a pylon this lift has been closed for Winter 2019 but confirmation that there will be a lift in place for next season. Interestingly the runs from the top of the lift (Creux Noirs and Roches Grisses) are still being groomed for those hiking / racing up – or is it to maintain the slopes and keep them safe?
