Hang onto this photo: it's a view you'll never see again. The cabins were dismantled yesterday, a few hours after our shot was taken, and the pylons are coming down soon. The Solaise cable car has been working since in 1942.

And as you can see, the cables have also been removed from the Solaise Express chair.
So what is going to replace these two lifts? This is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI0R9WePf64&feature=youtu.be
