One of our informers was up at Val Thorens a few days ago. He took a look at the work on the new Bouquetin Funitel (two wire cable car) which will replace an exiting chair and give quicker access to the other parts of the Three Valleys.
Although the concrete has been poured for the two stations there looks to be a lot more work to do. The Funitel, the third at Val Thorens, had been slated to open for this season, but with snow already falling in the ski station there is no chance it will be ready. So the Bouquetin chair will run for another season.
