    Whoa. I’ve actually been on that lift (Cucumelle at Serre-Chevalier). It’s the only way to get from the Monetier-les-Bains side of the resort to the rest of it, so that’s going to be kind of inconvenient.

    Is it me or does it seem like every time there’s a lift destroyed in an Avalanche it’s the French? I can think of at least a few instances of this happening…

      Could it be there are simply a lot more lifts in avalanche terrain over there?

        Perhaps, though the Swiss would likely have the same problem.

          I actually rode the Kumme lift. Quite cool primitive technology. Very well maintained too. It’s a shame that area is currently without lift service.

      The chair was truly a sad thing to see go. There’s only so many 1981 detachable triples. It was the oldest detachable chair I’ve ever ridden (my oldest gondola was on the same mountain, only about a mile away. It’s gone now too). They plan to replace the chair with a two stage gondola, but it’ll never be quite the same.
