Getting to the Snow


You can either walk up through Chemin D’en Ly or up the main road in the walking lane. If you’re here at busy times, you’ll see people trying to park on the main road and many walk up the hill below the house. The walk from our house to the Les Prodains Cable Car, restaurants and ski hire shops is 11 minutes. It is uphill, but your legs will be ready for skiing by the time you get there, it’s our morning warm-up. It’s our preferred method of getting up to the snow for adults. When it’s busy, we often beat also the traffic that can queue past our house on busy days and the buses can be full at peak times. 

The walk from the chalet to gondola

Free bus

You can walk up to the Les Lans bus stop (green 2 above) in 3 minutes or down to the bus stop next to the free parking (green 1 above) in about 4 minutes. If you’re going across to Morzine / Les Gets and the bus stop is on the other side or the road there (we always favour the Les Prodains lift to Avoriaz for higher slopes and better snow but it’s great to experience all areas if you have time). The ride to Les Prodains is a few minutes or less, the ride into Morzine is about 8 minutes.


The A line to the gondola/Morzine


There is paid parking at the Les Prodains cable car but it fills up pretty early in peak weeks. If it’s later in the day or end of the season you can also usually park along the road around Les Prodains, but it’s not advised in the season. If you’re driving to Morzine, there is parking underground at the Pleney lift.
