This winter, in Châtel, skiers will test the Morclan chairlift in its new version: a detachable 6-seater POMA chairlift. Located at the arrival of the Super-Châtel cable car, it takes skiers to the top of Le Morclan at an altitude of 1970 m. It replaces the original 3-seater chairlift with fixed clamps installed in 1983. The hourly flow of 1200 people will increase to 1800 people with 35 6-seater vehicles on the cable that can go up to 2400 people with 50 vehicles.
