Nice view point in this he summer or winter. On the top of the lift is terrace with view on Mont Blanc. We climbed up to Petite Verte peak which is beautiful climb. I recommend to do it with guide.

I have used this uplift a few times. Last week we went up for the Freeride event and the whole thing was organised excellently. The staff were friendly and the lift efficient.

Once upon a time... Les Grands Montets were a magical ski place, where pistes - and off-pistes ! - were just above all the touristy other resorts. Today, there is routinely 1h of queue to go to the top. If you can get the special...More

Chamonix is a cute town, but over-the-top touristy to the extent that the authenticity has been trodden out. The Telepherique is only OK and not worth the money during the summer on a rainy day. Winter skiing is totally different, but don't go out of...More
