Champery, located on the Swiss side of the giant Portes-du-Soleil ski area which stretches for 650km across the French-Swiss border, has a new six-seater chairlift this winter which will make getting around the vast ski area that little bit quicker and comfier.
The new Grande-Conche chair replaces a couple of old drag lifts, dramatically increasing capacity, as well as comfort on the route from 1900 to 3000 skiers and boarders per hour. The 3km long lift ascends 450 vertical metres and cost an eye-watering 13 million Swiss Francs (about 7 million pounds!).
