Téléverbier SA prides itself on being a healthy, forward-thinking company. Despite some challenging years due to the pandemic, we have continued the rollout of our investment roadmap as originally planned.
And so, throughout the summer of 2022, a number of renovation projects will be carried out across the Verbier 4Vallées ski area.
Upgrading of the Le Châble–Verbier cable car
After 20 years and almost 60,000 hours in operation, the four-seater cable car connecting Le Châble and Verbier requires substantial renovations to be able to handle its next few years of service. This lift has proven highly popular, especially since it became part of the public transport network.
Here is a quick, non-exhaustive summary of the planned renovations:
- Replacement of the carrier/traction cable
- Replacement of the main motor
- Replacement of the electrical drive system
- Upgrade of mechanics
- Complete service of the line’s rollers
Almost two months of intense work are required to complete these renovations. The cable car will therefore be out of service from May 2 until July 1, inclusive. The bus company TMR will be providing a replacement bus link between Le Châble and Verbier. Services will run more frequently.
Furthermore, throughout this period, the 4 Vallées annual pass will be valid for travel on the 12.251 Le Châble–Verbier line.
Replacement of the La Pasay chairlift
In service since 1990, the La Pasay chairlift no longer meets user expectations with a journey time of over 11 minutes. With the chairlift being the gateway to one of the most beautiful slopes in the Verbier 4Vallées area, its replacement will be music to many ears!
Summary of the new chairlift’s technical features :
|Manufacturer||Bartholet Maschinenbau AG (Swiss-made)|
|Seats||Six-seater chairlift with protective hood|
|Throughput||1,600 persons/h our, max. 2,000 persons/hour|
|Lift speed||6 m/s|
The renovations will begin in May and continue until December 2022. Services are expected to resume for Christmas 2022.
We would like to thank the residents affected by this extensive construction work for their understanding.
La Pasay restaurant
Replacing the chairlift is not the only project underway in Bruson this summer! The La Pasay snack bar will be fully renovated and extended to transform it into a traditional, local mountain restaurant with a sunny terrace and panoramic views.
The venue will be able to seat 80 people inside and 68 on the terrace. An indoor picnic area will also be available for skiers looking for a cosy spot to enjoy a quick bite to eat.
