Prodains cable car
Located down in the Morzine valley, the Prodains Express cable car takes you to the resort of Avoriaz 1800 in just 4 minutes. You'll find an outdoor car park right next to the cable car.
- Check the weather report and traffic conditions before you leave.
- Don’t forget winter car equipment: tyre chains, spikes, sleeves or snow tyres. In some cases these are compulsory when it snows. Make sure the equipment is easy to reach within your vehicle and that you also have a pair of gloves nearby. As soon as the conditions require, stop on a car park or at one of the designated chain-fitting areas.
- Remember to take water and snacks with you, and to take breaks along the way.
Drive carefully and enjoy your trip!
