Opening Summer weekend and What's New including the new hands free lift pass turnstiles, the replacement of the Signal and Bel Air drags in 1650 with a 6 seater chair and new bubbles on the Le Praz & 1550 Grangettes gondolas. There's also a new lift from the roadside in 1550 to access the gondola and a new restaurant being constructed at the bottom of Mont Vallon (plus some new snow cannons on the run down to the restaurant).
