Absolute cr@p idea, only used the bus twice, hope it doesn't put people off having to pay.......
According to one of the comments SC is the only French resort charging for the ski shuttle bus Confused

@KenX, I was hoping it didn't put them off. We don't use the bus that often, but being up in Monetier, there are times when we've been over in Chantemerle and the link has closed. I know some of my guests with less experienced skiers in their party use it quite often. 2€ doesn't sound like much, but for a family of 4 that's 16€ per day.
Apparently the bus is funded by the communes and the SCV (tourist office I assume) has stopped conributing to the tune of 120,000€, saying it is going to be invested in new lifts !!! Might buy a pylon I suppose. rolling eyes

Have been curious as to where the new Rocher Blanc lift is exactly and how much extra vertical we'd have to do when skinning back up from Les Combes after dropping off the back of Eychauda so seemed like a good excuse for a hike with Les Chiens.

We parked up from Puy Chalvin along from Puy St Andre rather than drive to Les Combes and took a steep track up that then mellowed out into some very nice larch terrain and then found ourselves above the tree line and could make out the new lift.

We hiked near to the old lift and knew the track as we'd been up there last autumn going to Chalet Serre Blanc me riding and the OH running.

The lift is actually only 10m down from Chalet Serre Blanc slap back next to the Croix de la Nore.

Now with the old lift closed that's actually going to open up far more slack country and hiking up was apparent that with good snow cover a descent down to Puy St Andre would seem like a good option and either skin back or is there a navette ?

Video shows photos and locations of lift.

Was looking for obvious bus stops and there was one in St Andre and another right outside the Chez Bear junction but tried Googling and found nothing, though sure the Chez Bear team will know.

Really good option for a big dump powder day, and safe.

Great, I've a couple of lift pass questions. This might seem stupid but I couldn't figure it out the way it was worded online - when you get a six day lift pass I see you get other days in some nearby resorts like AdH, L2A, La Grave - is that one day in each resort or one day in just one resort? Are they all nearby, short bus ride or tricky to get around?

Also do you know if there's any instructor or ISIA discount on lift passes?

@moseyp, I think if you have a 'pupil' with you who is also buying a lift pass there's discount on passes at the ski pass office window if you show your ISIA card. This is what the ski pass website says on using in other resorts (it doesn't include La Grave, although there is a discount for season pass holders)
