When is a cable car not a cable car? When it's actually a giant gondola!
The cabins keep moving in a continuous loop, the mechanism disengages them from the fast-moving haul cable so that they can trundle slowly through the terminals.
This is the principal arterial link at the core of Les 2 Alpes' ski lift network.
Its huge base-terminal station sits at the edge of the central base-area slopes, at the south-eastern corner of the place des 2 Alpes in the middle of the resort. The first-floor entrance is reached via an access ramp from the piste-side ground level; to help ease queue congestion, the lift pass control cabin & turnstiles are located at the lower end of this ramp, but this is still a very busy bottleneck most mornings.
The journey up gives commanding views over the town & base-area slopes, and then the entire Cretes 2100 area, before passing high above the Thuit Coomb to arrive at the Toura 2600 sector interchange, where its onward linking twin the Jandri Express 2 cable car
is housed in the same terminal building: for a complete guide to onward routes & links, please consult our orientation guide to Toura 2600
