Celebrating women

We want to introduce you to the women of the Val d'Isère ski lifts by looking at four exciting jobs that ensure our customers enjoy an unforgettable stay.

Hospitality and access control

The role of those managing the access to the lifts is vital. They ensure that skiers can access the ski area as simply and efficiently as possible. This involves ensuring that the access barriers at the bottom of the lifts (chairlifts, gondolas, and cable cars) are working properly. And, if you have any questions about the ski area, such as lift times or access to certain runs, they will be happy to help.

Ski lift operators

The lift attendants play an equally important role in the operation of the lifts, as they are the ones who manage the equipment, including drag lifts, chairlifts, gondolas, and cable cars. They are there to make sure that they are running smoothly throughout the day, so that skiers can take the lifts in complete safety, by holding the chairlift back and making sure that the boarding area and access to it are cleared of snow so that the lift runs seamlessly.


The job of snow maker is not the best known, but it is of vital importance to the operation of the ski area during the winter. Their role is to prepare and coordinate the production of artificial snow based on several important criteria, such as the outside temperature and the current natural snow cover. The snow maker is also responsible for ensuring that the snow cannons, strategically placed throughout the ski area, are working properly. Val d’Isère Téléphériques’ snow workshop guarantees snow covered runs all winter long.

Lift pass sales staff

You've probably already met one of them when you bought your skipass at one of our sales outlets: they are, of course, the skipass sales staff. Their role is to help you buy your skipass during your stay, but they are also there to advise you and answer any questions you may have. They are also available online if you have any questions about buying a skipass on our website.
