About the Summer Lift System in Val Thorens
The 3 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 Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens have to offer, or simply just to admire the summer mountain views.
Typical opening dates for the 3 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 4 lifts open in Meribel, 3 in Courchevel and 7 in Les Menuires, St Martin and Val Thorens in total. These 7 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 of bad weather but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status.
Summer Lift Pass Prices and the Summer 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.
