New Lifts for Winter 2006/2007
Poma replacement on Lac Bleu & new 6-Pack Chair in Mottaret
Thanks to Nick Ski for the pics
It looks like they are renewing the Lac Bleu Poma drag lift and reshaping the top of the Lac Bleu run (this is the run mainly used down towards Biollay and Courchevel 1850 from the Col De La Loze above La Tania). Improvements to the La Tania Green Run here.
There's also a new 6 man chair that is replacing and extending the Chatelet chair near the Plattieres 2 & 3 Gondolas over in Mottaret. This means that you can get the Combes chair out of Mottaret, ski across to the new chair and then access the Côte Brune lift to get to Val Thorens (avoiding the bottleneck of the Plattieres 1 Gondola and the need to take your skis off).
