Take in the view

You’ll find another incredible viewpoint at the top of the Madeleine chairlift on the Solaise massif. At an altitude of 2,766 metres, soak up views of the Solaise cirque, the Manchet Valley, and the Roche des Fours - an environmentally protected zone within the Vanoise National Park.

In the distance, you’ll also catch a glimpse of Chevril Dam and its artificial lake covering more than 2 square kilometres.To get there, hop on the 10-seater Solaise gondola lift from the snow front and make the most of the free WiFi and heated seats.

When you get to the top, head straight down to the right of the Pim Pam magic carpets to the start of the Madeleine detachable chairlift.
