I too would very much like to purchase a gondola - any details of where or who I can contact would be greatly appreciated. Swissie, if you could get details for me too that would be great!

johnnyh,

Here's their details (I believe)

Location: http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pros/50214985 and their website http://www.bricetbroc.net/plan.php

Also there is a forum dedicated to this sort of thing (helps if your French is OK although I'm sure Google translate would suffice)

http://www.remontees-mecaniques.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=12629

Also in the news: http://www.ledauphine.com/haute-savoie/2011/08/30/l-incroyable-succes-de-la-vente-des-oeufs-des-gets-vendus-par-un-brocanteur-de-taninges

Judging by the newspaper article, it may be a little beyond your budget !

I think the Morznet ones have been on a few sites - I enquired but they require pretty serious renovation. None of them have complete windows.

Hi there - we have fully refurbished a vintage ski bubble and used it as a photobooth for our wedding. It's on ebay at the moment but I'm certainly open to offers.

@seniorcr, the OH wants one of these in the garden, but even though we're within your 20 mile delivery range I think £3k might be a a bit beyond our budget for such an item!

Wow, that went quickly. Where did you get it from? I'm building a games room in my garden at the moment in the theme of an alpine lodge and would love a bubble.

Thanks

Hi

Anyone ever seen where you might be able to buy a bubble from a dismantled lift? I am after one of the older style ones. I saw a pile of them at La Praz last winter, and Les Gets a couple of summers back but couldn't find out who to ask. They must go somewhere! We want one as a feature in our business.

If anyone has one behind their sofa, or in the shed I will collect wink

I have a very old one. Its in need of restoration. I'm looking for offers Very Happy

@Amandapixie, the original post is 8 years old and the business no longer exists, so don't think you'll get much of an offer from ScottyDog!

I was told you can put your name down for one of the Flekenbahn gondolas to be replaced next winter ,The price I was told was 300 euros, better than the 3/4000 quoted above.

If anyone is still looking for a gondola to buy, I am looking to import a number from Europe in the next month or two. Please just drop me a message for information and to discuss. Multiple 'models' available, from the small 4 seater traditional ones to larger more recent models. Can deliver within the UK. Thanks!

Sorry, not been around on here for a while but yes @admin, is correct, Alpine Accessories is run by the people we bought our B&B from. Highly recommended and great to deal with. The link from @flangesax above is the correct one for them.
