The ski area has been undergoing modernization since winter 2019 with the creation of a telemix, the 6 place du Bois Noir chairlift and 2 snow carpets. 2023 will see the birth of two new chairlifts.

Higher, more beautiful: these two teleport lifts will provide access to the highest points of the ski area. More modern and comfortable, access will be quicker so you can enjoy the descents while spending less time in transport.

The Vars Speed Master chairlift:

The second section of the Chabrières telemix line, Vars Speed Master is a detachable 6-seater chairlift providing access to the highest point of the ski area (skier and pedestrian access).

Le télésiège de la Mayt:

Change of route for this historic chairlift in Vars, which will now depart directly from the Vars les Claux snow front.
