La Plagne Releases Lift Pass Prices, Offers and Innovations for Next Winter.

By Surfcat

Heather from Ice and Fire has sent us the latest news from La Plagne's lift company - some interesting news, so please read on:

"SAP, the La Plagne lift pass company have been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for next season and, this week they have launched their 2011-12 lift pass prices.

Most passes have seen an increase of roughly 2%, in line with the French increase in the cost of living. In real terms that means that a 6 day adult Paradiski pass will increase from €249 to €254 for the forthcoming season.

The resort is working hard to attract, and keep, more families this year with no change to the family pass price which will stay at €799 for a 6 day Paradiski pass for 2 adults and 2 children. They are also planning on introducing a free kids liftpass offer over Christmas, giving one free child Decouvert or Paradiski pass when the parents purchase the same pass.

The 2011-12 winter season will also see a major organisational change, with the deposits for the physical cards themselves being scrapped. Starting from the beginning of next season, the lift pass office will provide the physical cards free of charge to anyone purchasing a lift pass. The aim behind this change is to streamline the system, and to reduce the workload of the lift pass company and the tour operators who sell the passes. The change has been welcomed across the region, although some have concerns for the environmental impact if an increasing number of passes are being used. The lift pass offices will still re-use all passes that are returned, and the office at Les Coches has already commissioned a lift pass recycling stand for use outside the liftpass office.

At Ice and Fire we will be returning used passes to the liftpass office for recycling too – so please don’t forget to hand them back at the end of your stay!"

It's interesting that they will be scrapping the lift pass deposit - will other resorts follow suit we wonder?

Ice and Fire have Earlybird prices available for next winter so take a look at Chalet Campanules if you're planning to ski in Paradiski next winter!
