In favour of ski lifts

Ski lifts, chair-lifts, gondolas…

We intervene and invest within the framework of the law concerning accessibility dated 11/02/2005. Our mission is to make the mountain accessible to all and making ski lifts, chair-lifts… accessible is a priority. Since the 2000s we have been working on the specific issue of accessibility of ski lifts and ski resorts. We have participated voluntarily to several meetings in Bonneville on how to make ski resorts accessible. These meetings concerning accessibility of ski resorts gathered representatives of state services, S.T.R.M.T.G. (Technical services of ski lifts and guided transports), M. Martial Saddier Mayor and Elected Deputy for Bonneville and Domaine Skiable de France.

We also make lift operation companies (POMA, LEITNER, DOPPLEMAYR…) more aware of the accessibility of ski lifts, chair-lifts and gondolas. We worked with the D.D.E. (Direction Départementale de l’Equipement) and Mr René Berthoux, who is now retired, on the accessibility of the telecabine of Les Houches, the one in Plan Praz and in La Clusaz…

We also voluntarily increase ski lift operators’ awareness of accessibility by showing them how to evacuate different adaptive skiing equipment from their ski lifts and chair-lifts (Chamonix Compagnies du Mont-Blanc, Combloux, Auron).

We also paid a professional to shoot a film on how to organise the evacuation of adaptive skiing equipment from ski lifts and chair-lifts. The film footage of the evacuation technics is given for free to winter sport resorts and ski lifts operators in the area.
