The pitches included in the service are Saint-Pierre de Chartreuse (35 euros); The Seven Laux (45 euros); Villard-de-Lans (45 euros); Chamrousse (45 euros); Lans en Vercors (45 euros); Alpe du Grand Serre (45 euros); Autrans (45 euros); Gresse en Vercors (60 euros); Vaujany (70 euros); Le Collet d’Allevard (70 euros); Alpe d’Huez (90 euros) and Les Deux Alpes (90 euros), 70 km away.

Uber said: ‘This ski season, you don’t have to worry about putting tire chains on your rental car in sub-zero temperatures, paying exorbitant prices to park in the mountains, or cram into a mini-bus with the rest of the eager travellers.

‘UberSki saves you from queuing for a rental car or lugging your gear on public transport. With winter-ready rides on demand, getting to the Alps has never been easier.

The service may expand in the future if demand is high enough.

The UberSki service was previously available in Chile and the United States

The news of the UberSki service comes as Uber steps up its efforts to keep passengers safe.

This week, it launched a new feature in the US that aims to alert drivers to buckle up via a distinctive chime from the driver’s phone and a simultaneous push notification to the driver’s phone.

“The intent is really just to help remind passengers to buckle up – in every seat, every time,” said Kristin Smith, Uber’s global traffic safety policy manager, who added that the chime “sounds a bit like an airplane seatbelt reminder.” ‘.

Uber plans to send push notifications to riders at the start of their next five rides and then periodically thereafter.
