It is an amazing and beautiful view from the top of mountain blanc/mont bianco. We took cable car from La Palud to Rifugio torino (3375 m), it cost us 30 euro per person round trip. There is a terrace, torino hut where you can enjoy the scenery but it takes 228 steps to reach which are steep. But yes you... More

The whole journey up to the top takes around 20 minutes but during peak hours, it might take at least 2 hours to queue up. Once you are up there, the view is excellent. But be prepared for a long waiting time. Once you get to the top, you would either turn left taking the stairs or turn right taking... More

Spectacular views and ski tracks. Loved every bits of it!!! We were so lucky with the weather. it was a gorgeous day with a limpid sky so that we could admire the valleys and the picks surrounding us and, of course, the majestic Monte Bianco!

What a stunning place to come skiing ! You're right on the border between Italy & France so you can choose to ski down from the top either back in to Courmayeur or by skiing the Vallée Blanche down to Chamonix in France. You should hire a mountain guide unless you're very experienced and familiar with this area.

Just go on a clear day and have the view of your life! We took the cable car and it wasn't a long wait cos it was off season. We met a few hell skiers at the same time probably trying to ski over to France or do the sky ski!. We stopped halfway to view the rocks collection. Nothing... More

We spent a week around the Mont Blanc in France and Italy, so we had very clear days, and cloudy days. We were in Courmayeur on a nice but cloudy day (invisible summit all day, but a lot of sunshine otherwise). So we decided only to go up to the first stop of the old lift. I'd say it's about... More

Even in July there was still snow and ice at the Refuggio Torino Nuovo, 200 steps above the end of the cable car. The views were stunning but the cable cars were crowded and cramped, which is presumably why a new cable car is currently under construction.
