There has been some pylon planting progress for the new lift.
The helicopter was flying last week lifting the various components of the pylons into place. Unfortunately, I was busy with guests and couldn’t get out to photograph it. However, we did share a video from the SPL Oz-Vaujany on our Facebook page.
The Allemont lift is making progress towards completion later this summer.
The lower installations are well on their way with the familiar shape of a lift taking place. The buildings in Allemont will be the largest part of the construction with the Car Park and ticket office.
There will also be the hangar for storing the gondolas out of season.
Elsewhere, the concrete is being poured for the bases of the pylons. This has needed a helicopter to deliver the wet concrete for pouring as the terrain is too steep for any vehicles.
The pylons themselves are being delivered at the base of the dam and will also be assembled with the help of the helicopter.
