GD10 Pointe de la Masse

GD10 Pointe de la Masse

The 2021/22 ski season began with a new installation from LEITNER in Les Trois Vallées, one of the world’s largest ski areas (a total of 600 kilometers of slopes). LEITNER has boosted quality once more with the new “Pointe de la Masse” 10-passenger gondola lift. The new lift is the first LEITNER installation in France to achieve a maximum speed of 7 m/s. Factors that enable such outstanding performance include LEITNER DirectDrive LD7H and specially adapted stations. It now takes passengers just eight and a half minutes to reach the “Pointe de la Masse”, one of the area’s highest points at an altitude of 2804 meters, from which they can savor a breathtaking panorama. All 89 cabins can be automatically parked in the bottom station building. Each cabin has ski racks on the outside, making it more comfortable for passengers on the inside. Five of the cabins have also been fitted with glass floors to provide an all-round view.
