No Covid-19 social distancing on lift
Sep 2021
There are signs to encourage social distancing when on line to purchase tickets and when waiting to board, but once on the lift itself people are packed in shoulder-to-shoulder. In this case, I feel that proof-of-vaccination should be required and checked before you can board the lift.

Took trip with family. 2 adults/ 4 kids. Great experience. Views and looks down on the glaciers. A MUST! Enjoy the glaciers while they are still there. Told my kids that they will be gone when they visit with their kids in 30 years.
Take the cable car to Italy. It is worthwhile.
In times of corona wearing masks should be enforced in the big cable car to Aguille du Midi.

Great region and sites but frustrating website
Aug 2021 • Family
I’ve tried multiple times to buy 3 multi passes online for 2 days including a booking for Aguille du Midi for 15 Aug. without success. Every time I received an error message on the website.

Therefore I’ve bought 3 tickets for Aguille du Midi for the 15th of Aug. (191 eur) to be sure we can visit this awesome site on the 15th.
Afterwards I also bought 3 multi passes for 2 days (14 and 15 Aug). Including tickets for Aguille du Midi but without reservation.

Afterwards I went to the cassier at the station of Aguille du Midi and they told me that there is an issue with the website. It's not possible to buy a multi pass and make a reservation for Agui di Midi at the same time. Strange because it's promoted on the website???
After sending serveral emails and filling in several online documents I still haven't got my money back for my double booking of Agui di Midi (191 eur).

Breath taking!
Aug 2021 • Family
While visiting Paris, our adult family of 7 took a side trip via train to Chamonix (5 hours) . It’s the perfect historical alpine town with a full range of accommodation, activities, and restaurants. The summit of Aiguille du MIDI was spectacular! Everyone agreed it was a once in a lifetime experience for our family!

Spectacular View

Awesome experience with a lot of places that have unlimited view to the Mont Blanc. Well organised facilities. If you are afraid of heights you should think again taking the teleferique.

I must do indeed. Even in summer, the landscape is just out of this world. I crossed to the Italian side on the cable car and seeing all that snowy valley was a dream come true. You should definetly try to descend on the Italian side, at Courmayeur, the cable car is even better , turning 360 degrees so you can have different points of view.
Get an Italian gelato at the end.

No questions asked……

We were very suprised that despite corona we were not asked to show a ‘ pass sanitaire’ while waiting lines are long and crowded and the cabins were packed with people. Maybe legal, but certainly irresponsible.

On the day we visited there wa a breakdown. Waiting time to descend 2 hrs. Overcrowded cabins…..

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Compagnie du Mont-Blanc destinations. Our ski lifts are not subject to the sanitary pass control. The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc respects the Covid-19 restrictions mentioned by the decree of the Public Transport Services requiring the wearing of a mask but not social distancing between individuals. We also count on the good citizenship of our customers so as not to stick to each other; however our teams are very vigilant to the extent of their possibilities depending on the attendance. Hope to see you again in better conditions on our sites Kind regards
