In the heart of the ski area in less 6 minutes

Beginning from the winter 2015-2016 season, you can travel on the brand-new "La Forêt" chair lift at St-Luc/Chandolin, with 56 chairs each seating 6 people. This latest-generation lift enables winter sports lovers to speed to the top of the pistes in comfort and safety.

The arrival station is at an altitude of more than 2500 metres, so you'll enjoy an unobstructed view over the whole of the St-Luc/Chandolin skiing area, as well as an unrivalled panoramic view over the highest peaks in the Valais Alps (known as the Couronne Impériale).

Once you've got your skis on, choose your route down to reach one of the two skiing sectors in the area. An extension of the blue piste will take you to St-Luc, otherwise you can head towards Chandolin, passing the arrival point of the "Le Rotzé" chair lift.
