As we’ve seen in previous years, the good folk of Avoriaz aren’t scared of a bit of new lift investment. Perhaps encouraged by the resorts continuous ranking in world snow record tables, there seems to be plenty to get excited about in Avoriaz this winter.
The Brochaux chair is that one that takes you back towards Avoriaz from the bottom of the Mossettes lift. It’s rickerty old 3 man, popular with snowboarders who don’t fancy the Mossettes flats into the Lindarets bowl. Its 6 man replacement should make the charge back into Avoriaz at the end of the ski day much easier for everyone too.
There’ll be new base and top stations too. The base moves by 30 metres and the top station lands 280 metres east of the ridge. As these pictures from Christophe B – Passion Portes du Soleil show, work has already commenced and the project looks set for completion in December 2015.
