Morzine's Bélvèdere chairlift has been upgraded from a fixed-grip quad to a detachable six-seater for the upcoming 21-22 season.
The new chairlift will also have a much greater uplift capacity of up to 2,800 people per hour when it re-opens next month.
Providing greater safety and comfort than its predecessor, the improved Bélvèdere will offer faster access to the beginner area, as well as to the more demanding pistes at Chamossière and the fun space at the Pointe de Nyon.
What's more, the departure station will have a grass covered roof, integrating it perfectly into the surrounding area.
Morzine is one of the larger resorts in the vast cross-border Portes du Soleil ski region, with its 600km of slopes spreading across the French-Swiss border. The village is also one of the most northerly of the French Alpine resorts making it one of the shortest drives from the Channel.
