This cable car, which can carry 125 people per trip, takes skiers and non-skiers alike from Tortin to the Col des Gentianes in a few minutes.
During the ride, take advantage of the large windows in the cabins to admire the panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. From the Col des Gentianes, you can continue your ascent to the summit of Mont-Fort or descend towards Chaux/Verbier.
In summer, this cable car allows those who have made the long and difficult climb from Tortin to return to the valley in a more comfortable way.
If you are lucky, you may also spot the many ibexes basking in the sunshine at the foot of the pylons.
In winter, this lift serves the Gentianes freetrack, a long, secured but ungroomed slope that takes skiers and snowboarders back down to Tortin. For the less adventurous, the descent can also be made via the cable car.
