A new lift to the top of the Grands Montets Ski Area in the Chamonix Valley is at least three years from completion, according to the boss of the Compagnie du Mont Blanc lift company which is responsible for managing the ski area. Speaking six months after a fire destroyed the recently renovated Lognan Cable Car mid-station, destroying lift access above and below the station, Mathieu Dechavanne said that the company was looking at multiple options including repairing the existing old cable cars, or building all new lifts, possibly on a new route. Mr Dechavanne said there would be no fast decisions and said he thought it would be at least three years before the old lift was working again

Visitor Reviews of The Lecht
RyanM from United Kingdom writes:
Been to the Lecht many times and always had a hoot.
The owners are a lovely family; very friendly and helpful.
Thankfully it is still family owned so they are not just in the game to make fast cash, unlike natural retreats aka 'the gorm'.
A much smaller resort than 'the gorm', but cheaper and not as busy which means more runs and is also hidden from the wind that closed Cairngorm every other day.
Best food in any resort in Scotland; well priced unlike the robbing fools at Cairngorm who are only interested in profits.
Being over 1000ft below 'the gorm' height, they do suffer from lack of snow at times and have to make do with what they get.
