Even though the clouds wouldn't allow a 1000' experience, the short wait to step off the side of Mount Blanc into a marshmallow world was worth it. Well handled--they'll take your picture for you on your phone/camera.

I recommend going straight up the lift to get into the queue for this attraction (included in the ticket price) as even on a relatively quiet day we waited about 45 minutes (you only have around an hour and a half up at the Aiguille...More

there’s almost always a long line and they try to get you to buy a photo of you in there. It’s a waste. There are incredible views everywhere at the peak. Take pictures and selfies for free!

A great new attraction at the top of the Aiguille du Midi. Despite the long queue it is well worth the wait in order to Step into the Void. Fabulous backdrop of Mont Blanc too.

a short queue for this is well worth it, photographs with your own camera/ phone so no cost involved. A quick lift ride upto the location followed by about a 20 in wait, well worth it

Yes definitely it’s up in the mountain top. So if the Midi is closed then you can’t get up there.

Aiguille du midi cable car and Step into the Void (4 Replies)
I am going to Chamonix in August for the sole purpose of going to Step into the Void. I understand that I must by a ticket for the Aiguille du Midi Cable Car, but I cannot find out if I should book in advance. As there doesn't seem to be a booking facility on any sites, am I right in thinking I simply join the queue?

Thank you very much indeed. I spent a lot of time googling this yesterday, but did not find the website you recommended.
Cable Car Lift from Mont-Blanc Station (4 Replies)
Actually, I have a lot of questions in mind. I am trying my best to search for the routes but as I'm unfamiliar to the city, I am very lost. We plan to take a train from Paris to Chamonix (Mont-Blanc Train Station) around the end of July, 2017. My questions are as follows:- 1. Do I need to book an accommodation near the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Train Station (on Rue des Allobrogues)? 2.

1) Yes as it is school holidays throughout Europe. 2) From the Chamonix Mont Blanc train station the lift is about a 10 minute walk. 3) See answer nbr 2. The bus station is less than 100m from the AdM cable car Not too sure what your PS question is asking

I'll be in Geneva on 27th of December and would like to visit Chamonix from there. Based on initial research, I've shortlisted the following * Cable car to Aiguille du Midi. Step into the void * Mer de Glace train ride * Skiing But the information is scattered and I'm unable to decide on how many days should I keep for Chamonix. Plus, how important is it to make a prior booking online? Can I go there and buy from a local guide? Thirdly, I'd really like to try skiing but I have no...More

Chamonix is in France. So you should ask this in the France forum (or the Chamonix subforum)
