Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@Dave of the Marmottes, if you have Chrome, the translation is remarkably good.

It doesn't look exciting, though.

Yeah I still don't know what it means flow of people/hour? for number of lifts. Does that mean on average that there are only 4 people per hour riding the lifts in Villaroger ?

@Dave of the Marmottes, Teleporte means air-borne lifts - chairlits, bubbles etc, so it does not include ground-borne lifts - draglifts, magic carpets etc. Lift parks are presumably individual ski resorts, as oppsed to the large inter-connected domains. Cheers.

Average age of the lifts (way down down down) is 20 years in most resorts, so how old must the oldest be (in La Plagne from the final blurb)?

The oldest lifts date from 1969 and are : Cretes (built by Bourgeat), Dromadaire and France (built by Pomagalski)

The oldest drag lifts I know of are the Pre Guerin at le Sauze which dates from 1946 and the Turche at les Gets from 1945. Both built by Pomagalski but with drag lifts it is a bit like Theseus' boat. Maybe every bit bar the pylons has been changed with servicing?

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

I'd gathered that but it was the decimal separator that confused. That was the real explanation I needed.

@davidof, is Turche still there? I thought it had been replaced by a chair a few years ago...?

@Dave of the Marmottes, Sorry - did you mean this - Débit de 525.661 p/h pour 226 téléportés = 525.661 pax per hour uplift for 226 lifts?

Yep that's it - 525,661 people per hour not 525, 104,000 an hour for La Plagne etc. It's kinda useful when you get down to the average per lift to get an idea of the most crowded areas - makes St Martin look like a bit of a bottle neck and "normal" look like 2000 to 2600 per lift per hour
