New Six Seater Lifts In The Grand Massif (02-Jun-09)

Grand Massif, France, June 2, 2009 - Two new six-seater chairlifts are currently under construction

Two new six-seater chairlifts are currently under construction in the French Grand Massif region which includes the resorts of Flaine, Morillon, Samoens, Sixt and Les Carroz.

The first lift in Samoens, the new “Chariande Express,” will cut transfer time from bottom to top of the Samoens ski area by a third and more than double capacity on the route. The lift replaces two old chairlifts and one old ski lift.

At the same time important slope improvement work will be completed as well, to offer a great playground on this part of the ski area making it vary attractive for all Grand Massif skiers (from Flaine, Morillon, Samoens and Sixt).

The other six person detachable chairlift will be in les Carroz. The new “Les Molliets” chair will replace an old detachable quad chairlift and will increase capacity on the route by two thirds.

The new lift will allow skiers and boarders based in Morillon to return much faster when coming back from Flaine. Important additional slope work will also improve access to Morillon dramatically.
