Handicap
A cable car runs up to Flégère and allow to access to the Flégère ski area in winter as well as several hiking trails like the one to go to Lac Blanc in summer.
Accessible to people with a wheel chair.
To have access from the car park to the arrival hall, there are two ramps (4% steep) on each side of the main staircase. You’ll find there an adapted space (information and cash desk) for people with reduced mobility. Two adapted toilets (one for men, one for women) close to this hall. From there, access to the embarking space over a lift. A special control box should be installed close to the embarking area at the bottom as well as the arrival of the lift to go down. Access possible to all cabins for people with reduced mobility, but only a few of them are equipped with a fastening point. Be careful, at the top of the cable car, you’ll find in winter the ski area, but no specific space for people with reduced mobility. However, in summer, there is a path for people with reduced mobility to go to the restaurant “L’Adret”.
