Did you know?

If there's one lift that's emblematic of the resort, it's the Serre Chevalier cable car! Indissociable from the history of skiing in Serre Chevalier, it has been an integral part of the valley's landscape for over 80 years. And, to the delight of our vacationing friends, it's open in summer too.

Téléphérique Serre Chevalier


Focus on the history of the cable car from its earliest days

Although the project was first conceived in 1935, it wasn't until 1941 that the ropeway was inaugurated, in the midst of the Second World War. At the time, it was the longest in Europe, and consisted of two sections.

In 2013, the1st section was replaced by the Ratier gondola, but the structure of the historic station was retained.
The2nd section is still in service. While the Serre Ratier departure station had to be rebuilt following a fire in 1983, the arrival station at the summit is still in place.

It will be renovated in 2021, the year of its 80th anniversary: new roof, new interior and exterior cladding, repair of defective structural elements and other essential work. 

Once at the top of the aerial tramway you have easy access to the orientation table just a few steps away, at an altitude of 2,491 m. Prepare to be impressed by the exceptional panorama of the Guisane valley, the Aiguilles d'Arves, the Pelvoux and all the peaks of the Ecrins National Park.

During your stay, you'll undoubtedly want to...

- find out about the day's weather conditions

- choose appropriate clothing and footwear

- respect the trails by staying on the paths and itineraries and closing fences

- take your garbage with you ;-)
