Online PR News – 19-January-2017 – France – 5 delighted pairs quaffed champagne and canapes, served by their own personal ‘cable butler’, as they lounged on decadent fur throws to celebrate International Cable Car Day in Europe’s newest and most luxurious cable car, with heated faux leather seats, WiFi and a glass bottomed view of Val d’Isere. rnrnThe private cable car ‘cruise’ was organised by luxury chalet operator, Le Chardon, on the brand new 10 seated Solaise gondola in Val d’Isere, the result of a 19 million Euro investment.rnrnThe winners, who cruised in individual cable cars at twilight on January 17th, 2017, were treated like royalty with chalet hosts from Le Chardon serving a selection of gourmet amuse-bouches and chilled bubbly in each car, before enjoying a guided torchlit descent with the resort’s Ecole de Ski Francais team. rnrn“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate International Cable Car Day!” said Jamie Rennie, general manager at Le Chardon Mountain Lodges. “Tip top personal service and gourmet delights at 2,550m under the stars and above the twinkly village vista. We take for granted the advances in cable car design – we’re delighted that Val d’Isere continues to invest in its infrastructure to cement its reputation as a world class resort and luxury destination.”rnrnThe winning pairs were selected at random from entries of ski enthusiasts staying throughout Espace Killy. rnrnInternational Cable Car Day in 2017 marks over 150 years since the first patent in relation to a cable car was received by British born, US resident Andrew Smith Hallidie in 1871. The design was originally conceived for San Francisco when Hallidie witnessed horses falling under the strain of trying to pull cars up San Francisco’s steep Jackson Street. The cable propelled transit has since evolved to gondolas serving most ski resorts around the globe.rnrn“This caps it all for us – so much fun! We love coming to Val d’Isere and this has made our trip extra special,” commented winning pair, Angela Lowe and Steven Teague from Edinburgh.rnrnENDSrnNOTES TO EDITORSrnAbout Le Chardon Mountain LodgesrnLe Chardon Mountain Lodges is an exclusive collection of five luxury ski chalets in Val d’Isere, France.
