Summer Lifts in Val Thorens
Discover the Val Thorens summer lifts & areas
The Three Valleys has a range of lifts open for summer access to the mountains, giving you access to the hiking and mountain biking trails to explore all that Méribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens have to offer, or simply just to admire the summer mountain views.
Typical opening dates for the Three Valleys summer lifts are from the first week of July to the very end of August and you can traverse from Courchevel across to Méribel and Val Thorens/Les Menuires and back again with relative ease mid week, but take note that none of the lifts are open on Saturdays.
There are four lifts open in Méribel, three in Courchevel and seven in Les Menuires, St Martin and Val Thorens in total. These seven lifts in the Belleville valley open on different days of the week, so take a look at the lift opening dates and timetables below to help plan your days out.
The lifts are mountain-bike friendly with bike hooks, trolleys or gondola cabins that you can fit them into allowing you to access all the MTB trails in Val Thorens with ease.
Lifts will stop running in the case of high winds or bad weather, but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status.
Summer lift pass prices and lift pass options are slightly different to winter - it is worth checking the which lifts you can use before setting off. Paragliders also have access to a number of lifts throughout the summer.
