This has been an unusual year for all of us and we hope you have managed to get through it without too many problems. We thought you would like to know how we are managing skiing with COVID in 2021 during this winter.
We are currently opening our apartments this winter season with the option of room service meals. As soon as restaurants can open, we will be serving meals in the dining room.
There is still a lot of uncertainty about what will happen this winter for skiing holidays in 2021.
We have followed the French Government advice and are ready to receive skiers and snowboarders whenever you are ready to come. We were open during the summer and the systems we introduced were not intrusive but simply help to keep you safe.
Safe ski resorts
We do know that, along with every other ski resort in France, Oz and Alpe d’Huez have made the best possible arrangements to keep everyone as safe as possible on their skiing holidays in 2021.
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.
