La Tania New Green Run and Snow Front Update
Without any official confirmation it’s now looking like the promised new La Tania green run and new snow front / beginners area will not be in place for this Winter.
The proposed new main Folyères piste to come across towards Le Farçon and Ski Lodge with the piste being raised 7m and a tunnel from the village to a new beginners area appear to have been put on hold until next Summer. Hopefully a re-think around the raising of the piste and bringing skiers into the village instead of creating separation (and maybe not filling in the Swimming Pool and having a temporary tank instead) can be made.
The main focus is on Courchevel 1850 (as usual) with the new Le Praz link and car park allowing skiers to come right in to La Croisette area with the Tovets lift being moved down the hill plus the new piste and lift being completed for those that want to go swimming (the 63m Aquamotion complex). The Courchevel 1850 Stade area is being upgraded too and has resembled an open cast quarry all Summer.
No work on the promised new Creux Noirs drag lift appears to have started yet either (at least last time we were up Saulire anyway).
We hope to have the official explanation around 11 September – keep an eye out for a special “snow” report…
