Summer Lift Opening Dates Confirmed
S3V have announced 2020 Summer lift opening (with certain social distancing restrictions to be announced) from 5 July until 28 August. This will also give them the chance to test any appropriate protection measures that may be required for next Winter.
No mention of which lifts or any confirmation of any Tour de France lift opening around 16 September as of yet. Last Summer the La Tania Gondola, Verdons, Plantrey and Saulire opened in the Courchevel / La Tania sector. We’d expect the new Praz gondola to open too in order to support the new car park and reduce traffic.
France is still awaiting an announcement on when restaurants and bars will be allowed to start limited opening – perhaps starting with social distancing on outdoor terraces with table service for example.
S3V have also announced a policy change on lift pass refunds. From this Winter lift passes will now be refundable up to the day before use and passes from 2-21 days will be reimbursed pro rata in the event of the ski area closing.
