Because the base-terminal station for the Dome Express funicular
is located about 200 m (219 yd) away from, and 100 m (328 ft) below, the main Glacier 3200
sector interchange level, this rail-mounted cabin lift (elevator) provides a link between the two levels.
The lift's upper terminal is located just below Les Glaciers bar/restaurant complex
, and is accessible via a covered walkway from/to the interior of the restaurant; there is also a piste-side entrance/exit at the side of this walkway, facing the upper-terminal station of the Jandri Express 2 cable car
A single cabin travels externally on an inclined rail; the cabin is glazed at the front, letting in plenty of natural light and giving good views over the lower glacial zone towards the Toura sector.
At the base terminal: stairs lead to/from the underground funicular station below; there is also a piste-level exit/entrance in this stairwell, all on-piste routes from this level link with the Jandri 4 run
heading towards Toura 2600
