There will be a middle station at an altitude of 1900m to reduce the consequences of light snow cover and finally an increase in capacity, from 1800 people/hour to 3'000 people/hour, in order to reduce queues. The length of the entire journey will also be reduced by half, and will now take less than
seven minutes.

Crans Montana is also, "investing considerably in snow making as quickly as possible," according to a press statement. The network of pistes with snow produced mechanically will be increased, extending on the one hand to the top of the Chetseron piste, which will from now on be completely covered with artifical snow, as well as creating artificial snow between the Pas-du-Loup and Chetseron sectors on the other hand, via the Merbe middle station.

The capacity for snow cover on the existing network will be greatly increased, with the aim of being able to achieve more or less complete snow cover in the ski area
within a period of around 70 hours of cold weather.

"So Christmas holidays with no snow on the pistes should, in theory, be no more than a bad memory." said a resort spokesperson.
