Téléverbier SA and Télé-Thyon SA are working with the Swiss ropeway manufacturer Bartholet Maschinenbau AG to realise three new installations.
The year 2022 will bring exciting changes for the two ski lift companies of the 4 Vallées ski area in Verbier. The following major projects will be launched.
First of all, Téléverbier SA in Bruson will develop the sector with two major projects:
- Replacement of the fixed chairlift in La Pasay with a detachable 6-seater chairlift with weather hood. The journey time will be reduced from 11 to 5 minutes and the chair in the "Design by Porsche Design Studio" will allow guests to enjoy a ride with maximum comfort.
- Construction of a detachable 6-seater chairlift connecting la Pisse-Vache with Col de Chargerat.

A new Téléporté Mixte installation is being built in Thyon, in La Matze, replacing the two cable cars currently in operation. The planned installation combines 6-seater chairs with 10-seater cabins and allows a transport capacity of 2,000 people per hour. This investment will allow, for the first time, pedestrian transport between Les Collons 1900 and Thyon 2000, while maintaining the main function, i.e. transporting skiers and especially beginners. In addition, the " Les Collons " ski lift will be replaced by a new ski lift. Parallel to the construction of the new cable car, a strong development of leisure activities will be realised. Planned is, in particular, a brand-new winter toboggan run.
