Two New Six Seat Chairs For La Plagne
Monday, 07 June 2004





La Plagne isn't resting on its laurels following the opening of the Vanoise Express double-decker cable car and creation of the Paradiski ski area last season. The giant French resort will add two new POMA built six seater chairlifts for this winter.

The first new lift, Salla, will be a fixed grip chair, replacing two old drag lifts (Salla 1 and Salla 2) and increasing the capacity on the route from 1680 to 3000 skiers per hour.

The Salla uplift will completely change with the installation of the new chair. The two drag lifts will disappear and the beginning of the new chair lift will be on the slope of le Carroley. Now everybody from the other new lift Bijolin, the draglift of Plan Lechaux could take the lift to go to the altitude resort)

The second new lift, Bijolin, will be a detachable chair and run on the identical route to the old lift it replaces, increasing capacity on the route from 1200 to 3000 skiers pr hour.

The new lifts are intended to further enhance the Paradiski area. After arriving on the Vanoise Express then taking the Lac Noir gondola, the two new chair lifts take skiers straight to the heart of La Plagne.

La Plagne has also been spending more or snowmaking with the intention of having complete coverage of the connections between all ten resorts of la Plagne by the 2005/2006 season. For the coming winter, the top of l'Arpette and the slopes of St Jacques will have snowmaking, a long with Champagny, an area the resort feels really needs artificial snow coverage.
