A new 6-seater detachable chairlift is being built at Les Sybelles, France’s fourth largest ski area, at an estimated cost of €7 million.

The chairlift – replacing the old Corber fixed grip chairlift – will reduce the time needed to reach the top of the Le Corbier / Saint Jean d'Arves sector and optimise access to the Pointe de l'Ouillon at 2431 m—a strategic location and interconnecting the six Les Sybelles resorts: La Toussuire, Les Bottières, Le Corbier, Saint-Jean-d’Arves, Saint-Sorlin-d’Arves and Saint-Colomban-des-Villards.

Work is expected to end in November, with a provisional open date of 22 December. The manufacturer is BMF France, the French subsidiary of BMF AG.
