The Flegere lift is a great start to a stunning traverse back down the valley to PlanPraz. This direction of travel means that you get a continual view of Mont Blanc across the valley. The dog ran free and loved the walk, there are some step sections but it is mostly flat (ish). Very worth doing

Being on the opposite side to the Big mountains including Mont Blanc, you are rewarded with a real nice panorama. If the weather helps it presents an excellent photography opportunity.

Flegere is on the same side of the valley as the Brevent cable car with a basically level walk linking the two although there are moments of height exposure. The Brevent lift is at the end for an easy decent.

It made a good and safe travel to see the Mont blanc top place by the Cable car. Very nice to read in the walls how the Cable car have been constructed and made for usage to people. Nice effort and good mechanical cum civil work by the great engineers.

I'm still surprised that people who are here on holiday take that old and uncomfortable gondola to reach the Flegere skiing area when it is much easer and you will never have to queue if you go to Brevent with its very comfortable small gondola and from there in barely 20 minutes skiing you can reach the Flegere area.

This cable car is slow (one up, one down, with each car able to take a maximum of 50 people). We generally arrived early to minimise the frustrating wait time in the morning. One day we arrived just after 9 a.m. and waited for approximately 45 minutes before we could get a car up the mountain. The plus side is... More

This is a Cable car I can only recommend everyone to avoid. It doesn't matter if you are going up any time before noon or coming down in the afternoon, you will end up standing in line for a long time. Use the much more modern cable car at Brevent and make your way over to Flegere from there.

Flegere was one of the highlights of our trip. It has some lovely an interesting runs that open up into great views. We were lucky that it was very quiet when we went, and could really relax enjoy the runs at our own pace. We were then able to head over to Brevant for more variety of runs.

Omg..if you want to waste two hours of your precious holiday standing in the cold and emulating cattle then hit the down leg of this cable car any time after four and you won't be dissapointed...
