Les Houches, kilometer 11.667

The station building in les Houches has been closed to passengers since the 2000s. The former goods shed houses a power substation. Since 2019, les Houches station has been a terminal for the “shuttle” services inserted between the hourly baseline trains. With the shuttles, the line can offer a half-hour frequency between les Houches and Vallorcine in high season.
