VALRUTOR's Cable car - years '67/68 

As far back as 1948, when people still used wooden skis and skied with their trousers fastened at the knees, forward-thinking residents of La Thuile decided to build its first chairlift, sowing the seeds of what would eventually become a great skiing destination.

 Buoyed by the economic boom, in 1967/68, Turin’s Piemonte Funivie were tasked with constructing the first cable car, with its distinctive blue and yellow cabs, which can transport a total of 600 people up and down the mountain per hour. The Les Suches and Chaz Dura ski-lifts and the Cerellaz and Belvedere were next—the first steps towards building an international ski park including the French ski town of La Rosière.Now the Piccolo San Bernardo cable cars take visitors to and from the Espace San Bernardo—a ski park with over 150 km of trails, 85 slopes and 39 transport structures.
