Ski lift symbol: 8-seater gondola


6½ Minutes Journey1430 m (1564 yd) Long
450 m (1476 ft) Rise2000 Passengers/Hour
Sector:  Soldeu
The principal shuttle between Soldeu village and the mid-altitude services hub on the Espiolets Plateau. All visitors, beginners & experienced riders alike, have to travel to Espiolets in order to access this sector and all onward links; as a result, the queues for this gondola can be horrendous first thing in the morning, particularly on Mondays (NB: the parallel Soldeu chairlift is a handy queue-jump). Skis & snowboards should be placed in the holders on the outside of the cabins (assistance given), poles should be carried inside.

You get great views over Soldeu village and the Valira Valley on the journey up, plus a bird's-eye inspection of the entire route of Soldeu's signature steep Avet run directly below the lift.

On Arrival:  at the upper station, simply walk straight out on to the plateau: the ski school classes meeting points are lined up straight ahead, the school's office and crèche is in the big building to the looker's right; alternatively, simply put your gear on and glide away either to the left or right to move out on to the slopes and head out into the ski area.

The gentle Gall de Bosc piste, linking into the neighbouring El Tarter sector, flows away to the looker's right;  the Llebre, Salvans, and Torrallardona runs are also accessed in this direction, dropping away to the skier's right just beyond the Gall de Bosc restaurants complex (housing the ski school & Fun Food restaurant).

To the looker's left, in front of the terrace of the Espiolets services building, the beginners' slopes flow seamlessly into the Astoret piste towards the Solana chairlift for all onward links.

The Avet starts directly from the Plateau level and is reached by going round to the rear of the gondola building.
