Bouquetin – a new chairlift replaces the Plattières 3 gondola

We say “Adieu” to the vintage little bubbles of Plattières 3, and ‘Bienvenue” to the new Bouquetin chairlift! No more removing and carrying your skis and packing tightly into the gondolas: you can now make yourself comfortable on the new, 6-seater Bouquetin chairlift and admire its magnificent views. It will only take you 2½ minutes to reach the summit and access the Saint-Martin de Belleville or Les Menuires slopes.
The chairlift can also be used by non-skiers in both directions. Remember to hold on tight for the descent
– some people may find the drop into the Bouquetin couloir a hair-raising experience!
