Fabulous view across the Chamonix Valley on the way up and across the Haute Savoie when we arrived made up for the not so good snow.

Very safe and clean access to this station - good food and drinks available at both levels. Excellent outdoor seating area and other activities available at the station. Spent several hours soaking up the atmosphere, the views and the sun. Good value for money.

We have been to Chamonix in end December and it was a total disappointment as they did not invest there for at least 10 years. All the ski lifts are old as they do not slow down before picking you up. You can easily get injured if you are a beginner. Someone working there told me that they don't invest... More

We started our TMB here, all good. Used our multipass. Excellent way to get high with almost no effort.

Take the cable car up to the 3/4 level and then the gondola to the summit. In good weather, the views are simply amazing especially across the valley to Mont Blanc and the Aguille du Midi. There's a nice cafe at the summit and a restaurant at the 3/4 level, both with beautiful views. When at the summit, watch for... More

Rode up and down the telepherique, stopped at the top for a great 360' view, took some great photos, worth the ride, and made the walk up to Plan Praz from Chamonix worth the effort, would do it again anytime.

When we first arrived at around 9:30am we were told that the queue was at least 2 hours!. The next day it was 1 1/2 hours. Its much easier to use the Flegere cable cars as there are no queues and you can easily ski the blue runs to Brevent.
