UPDATED: New ski lift to connect Morzine & Avoriaz

A while back we posted this amazing video (scroll down…) showing the proposed new lift connection between Morzine centre and Avoriaz. Since then, a couple of new images of the proposed base station development have surfaced indicating new parking areas and suggesting that the plans are moving forward?

The plans have been under development for a while, but finally there’s word on the new ski lift that will connect Morzine and Avoriaz.  The project has the title ‘1 town, 2 resorts, 1 future’ and will connect the centre of Morzine with Avoriaz, via the new Prodains Express base. New parking areas will also be created in Morzine, near to the base station.

This video shows you the exact plans for the two resorts, and includes some excellent graphics to demonstrate exactly how the new lift stations will work. Scroll forward to 5mins to see the plans, the views from the new lift will be incredible! But is the planned development good for the local area? Or are you worried about it’s environmental impact? Leave your commends below…

    This looks like an amazing project that can only bring good to Morzine/Avoriaz, an area heavily dependent on tourism. Environmental concerns should focus reducing the use of diesel buses to transport visitors around, these cableways are almost silent, produce no exhaust fumes and do not look out of place in a ski/summer mountain resort area.

    I am all for the new lift which I believe would be very positive for Morzine. I have heard various rumours about the likelihood of the project going ahead. Where can refund more information on this?

    Not sure when this “update” was posted, as the video is quite old now. Does this feel like another idea/project that will take many more years, if ever, to become a reality. Or is this any real update/momentum in the project. I think we all agree it would be great for both resorts, Morzine in particular
