Accessible on skis or on foot using the cable car (first built in 1952 and replaced in 1983), it’s well worth taking the trip up there in the cabin that’s regularly revamped. Speaking of works of art, the Saulire summit itself isn’t to be overlooked; it greets those coming to discover monumental masterpieces every winter, with breath-taking panoramas set against a backdrop of Mont Blanc and La Grande Casse, the highest point in the Savoie region.
At the foot of the cable car, you’ll find an exhibition covering the history of ski lifts. Then it’s all aboard and 3 minutes later, you’re at the summit! From there, you can access Courchevel’s ski area and hurtle down the legendary Combe de la Saulire or explore Les 3 Vallées, strike a pose in front of the photo frames, relax on a slopeside terrace… and even in summer, discover the highest Via Ferrata in France.
La Combe de la Saulire is a legendary Courchevel run where the snow remains exceptional from the start to the end of the season. It’s a must-ski, unmissable piste… Naturally bordered by mountains on two sides, the width of this North-facing run on the Saulire mountainside makes it accessible to most skiers so that everyone can enjoy doing their own thing.
