The Plattières 3 cabins are sold 

After 36 years of loyal service, it is time to say ‘au revoir’ to the Plattières 3 lift, and ‘bonjour’ to a newer, more modern replacement! The legendary gondola linking Méribel to Mottaret and Val Thorens will be replaced by a speedy and comfortable 6-person chairlift.

The original lift was opened in 2 stages in 1983 and 1984 with 45 bubbles (39 of which were repainted in 1993).

Does Plattières 3 hold a special memory for you?
Perhaps a romantic day on the slopes with a loved one?
An epic day’s riding with friends? 
A special family ski trip, even a fit of the giggles which lasted the whole 5 minutes’ journey to the top?!
Or perhaps you (or your children!) were born in the year it started running?

To give these iconic gondolas a new lease of life, the resort of Méribel has decided to sell them with profits going to three charitable organisations, so your investment will be for a good cause! Where will you put yours? A mountain-themed feature for your garden, a vintage hideaway in a corner of your house? Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a truly original Méribel souvenir…

The profits will be split between three charity organisations:

    This charity makes dreams come true for children and adolescents living with serious illnesses. In 2018, this charity gave Nohann his very first snowy holiday in Méribel!
    The National Association for the Protection of the Mountains challenges harmful practices in the mountains and works towards the preservation of the natural balance. 

    Ma Chance Moi Aussi supports vulnerable children from low-income districts, facing challenges with
