NEW Chairlift for St. Gervais ski area

Construction of new Epaule Chairlift

Construction is well underway in Domain Saint Gervais for the new Epaule chairlift. The old two person chair that goes up to the shoulder of Mont Joly will be replaced with a 6 person high speed detachable chair. This will be a welcome upgrade especially as it is on the higher altitude part of the domain. The skiing from this point is excellent with good off piste options and access to Saint Nicolas De Veroce.
