This Saturday, July 4, 2020, the most inclined zip lines in France, with a 37% incline, will open in the ski resort of Mijoux in the Gex region (Ain). These zip lines, which can be descended alone or in pairs (on each line), were designed and installed by the French group MND, via its subsidiary Techfun, which specialises in the development of sensational leisure infrastructures.
With an incline of almost 37%, this 905-metre long double zip line, linking the summit of the Faucille Pass (1,323 m above sea level) to the resort of Mijoux (1,000 m above sea level), is the steepest ever built in France, a guaranteed source of thrills. It is suitable for all types of public, with four-season operation. From a seated position, two people can simultaneously take off at a dizzying height of 25 metres from the ground, for an impressive descent of more than 900 metres at a maximum speed of 90 km/h.
The Communauté d’Agglomération du Pays de Gex has entrusted MND with the construction of this zip line in Mijoux, a village resort in the heart of the Monts Jura, for a sum of €1.8 million. The resort of Mijoux is located less than 30 minutes from Geneva.
Technical characteristics: Length: 905 m – Horizontal distance: 848 m – Vertical drop: 312.7 m – Slope: 36.87%.
