Did you know that?
The Serre Chevalier Cable Car: a historical and iconic lift of our resort !
The cable car project was born in 1935. However, the longest cable car of Europe could not be inaugurated earlier than 1941, in the midst of World War 2.
The first level has been replaced by the Ratier Gondola in 2013 although it kept its original structure.
The second level remains the same to this day even though the departure area of Serre Ratier had to be rebuilt following a fire in 1983.
The arrival station still exists and remains the same. It was renovated in 2021 for its 80th birthday : new roof, outside and inside siding, recovery of defective structural elements, … A new area was also created to allow visitors to take a look at the mechanisms such as the rotation of the pulley and the counterweight.
This Cable Car also allows you to reach the orientation table located a few steps away on the Serre Chevalier Summit, 2 491m high. From there, visitors can discover exceptionnal landscapes and views of the Guisane Valley, the Aiguilles d’Arves, the Pelvoux and every summit of the Ecrins National Park.
