Inside the Bond Villain’s lair

Each time I go inside this man made cave at the Prodains Avoriaz lift it makes me think of a Villain’s lair from the James Bond movies.

It was cut and blasted out of the rock face and opened in February 2013. It takes only 4 minutes to travel from Prodains at 1180m to drop its passengers in Avoriaz at 1800m.

Capable of shifting hundreds of passengers a minute it has transformed the experience from the days of the old two cabin lift where we used to queue for up to an hour at times.

Oh and it’s snowing and has been for 24 hours non-stop! It will add a couple of weeks to the season and is to be celebrated

It will also give me one more powder day before my ski season ends!
