An experience not to be missed. A small historic ski lift (and a stark contrast to the more modern ones at Dolonne and Cormayeur) and it will be gone later this year when the new state of the art ski lift is finished and in service. On the weekday we went up (non-skiers) it was very quiet and our travelling... More

Built in 1938 this hisotric life and one of Europe's highest is a great experience. The views are incredible and on top the air is thin and you feel as if you can reach out and touch the top of Mont Blanc. This classic cable car will be closed down soon being replaced by an expensive and modern mass people... More

Although it's not yet possible to get all the way up to Punta Helbronner, the trip to the Refugio Torino on the Funivie Monte Bianco is an incredible journey! Anyone who has read about Mont Blanc will find the views of all its pillars, towers and glaciers truly awesome! It is worth climbing the 200 or so steps to the... More

Brilliant Day. Splendid view and the 280 steps up to the Rifugio Torino... each one worth it!! Easy to reach from La Salle by Public Transport. Nice bar and restaurant to reward your effort and warm up with large choices of small snack and full meal, It is definitely a must!

My husband and I and our little dog took this cable car up the mountain mainly for the views and to take photographs. We do not ski but found the ride smooth and well worth the price. It is expensive to take the trip but there are restaurants on top so even if you are not into skiing its worth... More

Breathtaking, no doubt. The scenery, the ascent, the speed. The staff is knowledgeable and keen to answer questions and illustrate the marvels of the panorama, with great precision and kindness. The distance is split into two legs, each very long and almost vertical; at the end of the second leg you still have to climb over 100 metal step to... More

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
