For most people, the prospect of spending a night in a cable car is the stuff of nightmares. Taking Airbnb to new heights, this cable car gives guests a rare view of the French Alps from an altitude of 9,000 feet, that means 2,738 metres above sea level. The tech startup that connects empty rooms and homes with people who would like to occupy them has announced a new contest for an exclusive stay in a gondola-turned luxury hotel room above the French Alps ski resort of Courchevel. Book now!
From the suite, travelers can admire La Saulire, the highest point in the Courchevel resort, and, in the morning, they will be first in line to ski the pristine slopes. The uncommon hotel is furnished with two beds so that it can fit up to four occupants. The cable car, which has been fully converted to include two beds and furnishings – although no bathroom – will provide a room with a view for four guests this March.
The travelers will enjoy a journey up the mountains on snowmobile, fine food and wine, and an unparalleled, 360° view of the snowy landscape. The surprising transformation of the utilitarian cable car includes comforts like fuzzy rugs and curtains over the windows.There’s no television and no ice service, just an extraordinary experience you can go on about for the rest of your life. Indeed, this is a vacation package good enough to rival our recommendations for the best ski resorts in Europe.
