We had luck and went from totally whiteout to clear sky. Wonderful view at the mount blanc. The glass terrace is a must. The trip from the middle station to Montenvers is nice too.

Very expensive but definitely worth it! 28 degrees at the bottom of the mountain the day we went up, 5 degrees at the top - bring a warm jacket no matter how hot it is at the foot of the mountain!
