Over the last few years, SAP, the La Plagne lift company, has been replacing old lifts with high-performance, high-speed equipment, much of which has benefited our guests in Montchavin La Plagne.
The brand new 6-seater Crozats was a hugely welcome addition last season; the beginner’s area at the top of Plan Bois had a new, covered magic carpet put in, plus a draglift from the Chez Laurettes restaurant; and last year we were able to use the covered ‘Ange’ magic carpet to get back quickly to Montchavin and Les Coches.
This year, we’re excited to see that the slow Inversens chair is being replaced by a speedy 6-man chairlift. This really is great news for everyone staying in Montchavin La Plagne (including all our guests) as it means guests can now quickly access the Roche de Mio, without having to go via Plagne Bellecote. Roche de Mio is one of La Plagne’s main peaks, which also gives access to the glacier, so this new route (avoiding one of the more congested areas of the resort, Plagne Bellecote) will be a bit of a game-changer. Can’t wait!
Plus, the Inversens run itself is great fun, and definitely one of our favourites – so if you’re anything like us and quite enjoy doing a run over and over again (!), you can now do it in super speedy time!
