One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
- ‘There are huts and téléphériques everywhere.’
- ‘Should you be seeking adventure I would advise that on your descent, at the 3rd station, 2nd from the top, you get off the teleferic.’
- ‘A highlight was to take the teleferic down to the beach, which is within walking distance of my hotel.’
- ‘Funiculars operate on the same principle as teleferics but the coaches run on rails.’
- ‘The teleferic is most often the predatory of the funicular, but without its charm and attraction.’
- 1.1 A mountain cable car.
- ‘This is the entrance to the téléphérique (cable car) station at the top of Mont Salève.’
- ‘There is a staggering number of telepheriques, allowing average folk to gain much elevation without humping loads for hours to get to the alpine terrain pretty much anywhere in the range.’
- ‘If they decide to take a break from the slopes, they can take a trans-glacial ride on the world's highest telepherique, a cable car which stops en route at skiing and hiking destinations.’
- ‘Amongst other things you can: go up the mountain with gondolas, teleferics and chairlifts, come down the mountain with mountain karts, downhill mountain bikes… also trips on quads, trekking, horse-riding…’
- ‘That said, I personally would prefer to see far fewer huts, telepheriques, and associated clutter which impact on the mountain environment and can erode the overall experience.’
