The Mountain Lift System

The Alps are simply stunning in summertime and in all of our resorts we offer a free-and-inclusive pedestrian lift pass for access to the mountain, its network of trails and its activities. In Tignes and Val d’Isere we also offer a free biking lift pass so you can access hundreds of kilometres of high altitude tracks and trails which are graded from green to black.
Morzine and Les Gets
  • Pedestrian lift pass - Free
  • BIking Lift pass - from €5 per uplift (€80/week)
  • 25 lifts - open from June to September
  • 850kms of trails
Tignes & Val D’Isere
  • Pedestrian lift pass - Free
  • BIking Lift pass - Free
  • 10-12 lifts - open from June to September
  • 350kms of trails

Lifts for walkers & sightseers

The ski-lift system has been specially adapted for pedestrian use in summer and using the lifts are quite straightforward. They allow walkers and hikers to reach high vantage points easily, and to cover many miles of alpine terrain and see lots of wildlife. The lifts will also allow you to access some of the mountain activities like the Fantasticable (longest zip wire in Europe) and the mountain lakes for wild swimming, kayaking or the goat village to name a few. And everyone uses them for sightseeing and getting to the mountain restaurants for lunch.

Walkers and hikers will also use the lifts for quick access to the highest altitude trails and glacier walks in Tignes and Val d’Isere. 

Lifts for bikers

Mountain bikers can choose to use chairlifts and gondolas, which have all been converted - with special attachments - to hold mountain bikes. The lift system is open to bikers (and walkers) all summer and they access hundreds of Km’s of tracks and trails from green to black, so that beginner to advanced riders can sample miles and miles of REAL mountain bike terrain.

Downhill riders will revel in the simple fact that you can spend less time pushing your bike uphill and more time blasting down the trails instead! Cross country riders will enjoy being able to cover vast distances and see miles and miles of scenic terrain at altitude or along the valley floor.

Morzine & Les Gets Lifts

For early and late season weeks the lifts are open at the weekends in Morzine and Les Gets. They are closed for weekdays (until June 17). We run our Premium Activity weeks until June 18th, which works well when lifts are closed during the weekdays as it allows us to focus on the many premium activities that we lay on for our guests. And they don't need lifts.
