Another novelty spotted during our recent ski holiday.
Several very long shiny transparent tubes crossing the snow just below Val Thorens.
Turned out to be Travelators.
I had seen shorter, exposed versions in several resorts, where they are particularly useful for getting absolute beginners, mainly kids, back up the nursery slopes.
But these are the longest I have seen, and the only covered ones.
