Summer Lift System in Val d'Isere

About the Summer Lift System in Val d'Isere

The Espace Killy (Tignes & Val d'Isere) are linked in the summer by a network of lifts giving you access to the many and various hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as summer skiing on the glacier when conditions allow.

There are typically 3 lifts open in Tignes in the summer, two in the main part of resort (the Palafour & Toviere) and one up in Val Claret (Tufs). In Val d'Isere you can use two summer lifts, the Olympique and the Borsat. The Toviere and Tufs lifts give you access to Val d'Isere and in the opposite direction the Borsat lift connects you back to Tignes.

The lifts in Tignes start running at 10am and take a break for lunch for just half an hour, then continue on until 5pm. In Val d'Isere they start a little earlier but also have a half hour lunch stop. 

The good news is that all the summer lifts in both resorts are free to use, whether you're a walker, a mountain biker or you just want to head up the mountain to admire the views. You just need to collect a pass from the main tourist office, register your details in the system and away you go!

The lifts are mountain-bike friendly with bike hooks, trolleys or gondola cabins that you can fit them into allowing you to access all the MTB trails in Val d'Isere with ease. 

Lifts will stop running in the case of high winds of bad weather but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status

In Summer, the Summer Lift Pass Prices and the Summer Lift Pass Options are slightly different to winter - it is worth checking the which lifts you can use before setting off. Paragliders also have access to a number of lifts throughout the summer.

Open in both the winter and summer season you can use the lift system to access the whole area, giving you the opportunity to enjoy all the Winter and Summer activities the mountains have to offer.
