The full history and panorama of Avoriaz in just 4 mins
The Prodains Express is a 12-cabin,
35-seat cable car, linking the foot of Les Prodains to Avoriaz in 4 minutes,
since March 2013. Little time to admire the panorama of 300 hectares unfolding below
you, second by second. Take the opportunity to take it all in. Before you,
Arare, Lindarets, Chavanette, Plateau, Indrets, Prodains and Super Morzine. See
the crests of Les Hauts-Forts (2466 m) and the Pointe des Mossettes, rising to
2250 m above sea level in the Valais.
a moment to think of Jean Vuarnet, Alpine skiing champion at the 1960 Winter
Olympics, who obtained permission in 1978 to construct a set of 28 mechanical
ski lifts in the Avoriaz alpine pasture. Admire
the old village of Avoriaz, where farmers would take their livestock in summer
to wooden chalets just like ours, Le Fangle..
