New Six Seater Chairlift Leads Courchevel News For 2009-10 (20-Jul-09)

Courchevel, 3 Valleys, French Alps. Courchevel will install a new six seater chairlift for the coming season

Courchevel will install a new six seater chairlift for the coming season, equipped with the Magnestick system, to modernize the link between Courchevel 1850 and Courchevel 1650.  This is the main part of a host of initiatives and improvements for the coming winter at the famous French resort.

There will also be a new Family terrain park beneath the Verdon cable car incorporating snow park, snow cross and an ‘animation’s area.’ In addition the Cospillot’s ski lift will be extended to help make many more accommodation ski in ski out.

Six defibrillator machines will be placed in different levels of Courchevel for rapid availability for heart attack victims if required.

Lift pass changes include the creation of a three hours lift pass valid for any three hours of the day.  This will replace the ‘morning’ lift pass that will no longer be available, although the afternoon’s lift pass (from 12.30pm) will still be available.  Courchevel 1650 will be incorporated in to the minipass.

A new tourism office will welcome guests in resort. The new tourism office will be built in the heart of “La Croisette”, in Courchevel 1850, near to the lift pass sales desks, ski school desks and ski lifts. The new facility will include a free internet wifi area.
