As is normal, during early and late season, a reduced ski area will be in operation depending on snow cover. Lift pass prices usually reflect this reduction in the skiable area.
The lifts usually open at 09:00, and start to close around 16:20 (the time varies for each lift). From February onwards, the lifts stay open for a further half hour. You can find the exact closing times for each main lift at the lift stations. From Brides Les Bains, lifts are open daily from mid-December to early February, from 08:30 to 17:00, and from the 2nd week February to 3rd week April, from 08:30 to 17:30.
