2. How to access the ski area
Adapted for everyone's pleasure
The Princess gondola with its FREE outdoor car park will allow you to park your car in one of the spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility !
Once the pass is in your procession, go to the right of the cash desks to reach a ramp which will allow you to access the ski area.
After leaving your chair downstairs, an agent from our team will help you get into the cabin and your bob / uniski will be put in the cabin before yours!
The “Rochebrune” bus stop has been fitted out (raised sidewalk) to lower the ramp and obtain an incline of less than 15%. If you wish to park in the underground car park, 5 spaces will be reserved for you.
Access is on the same level, with sliding doors and a call bell is located outside, on the far left of the building, to notify the reception staff of your arrival (several steps to access the reception desk). ‘welcome).
The counters are equipped with a sound amplification system.
After taking the elevator, access to the cable car cabin is accessible on one level (cabins spacious enough to be able to rotate 360°).
At the top of the cable car, for more comfort, ask the reception staff for help to accompany you on the quick little climb.
> Mont d’Arbois gondola :
To leave from Mont d’Arbois, we advise you to favor the car (6 outdoor public parking spaces reserved for PMR + indoor underground parking with lift). The “Mont d’Arbois” bus stop is not equipped (sidewalk not raised).
To access the Mont d’Arbois cash desks as well as the start of the Mont d’Arbois gondola, you will have to take the climb which is just opposite the Meg’Bus stop. Automatic doors will ensure 100% independent entry!
The presence of a staircase at the entrance will not allow a person with an armchair the best of experiences, which is why in this case, we advise you to favor another starting point.
> Rocharbois cable car, direction Caboche :
The pedestrian path begins at the Mont d’Arbois car park, where you can take the lift (sufficiently spacious for manual or electric wheelchairs).
At the exit of the elevator, 2 possible options:
– by the main entrance of the Rocharbois cable car, which does not allow access with a motor handicap (problem of width of the corridor + obstacle of the turnstile)
– directly by the access to the cabins. The reception staff is trained and aware of disabilities and will be able to accompany you.
The cabins have level access and are spacious enough to rotate 360°.
