Did you know?

It was in the early 1930s that a logger in the town of Sallanches had the good idea of ​​adapting cable transport to the practice of downhill skiing, then in full swing in the neighboring villages.

Thus, in the winter of 1933, the first cable car specifically built for downhill skiing appeared in Rochebrune. The cabin, which for its first winter could accommodate up to 20 people, transported skiers from the hamlet of Rochebrune up to 1 meters above sea level, for a vertical drop of more than 750 meters in just ten minutes. A revolution for the time!

Modernized and colored red over the years, Rochebrune then became the laughing stock of many sportsmen in search of great skiing in winter. Even today, Rochebrune fully enjoys having had the first cable car in France which, in addition to having conferred on it a prestigious reputation, has offered it in 80 years the visit of 12 million amazed souls.
