Brevent Cable Car, Chamonix

4.7
#2 of 260 in Winter Sports in France
Brevent Cable Car offers 2,525 m (8,284 ft) views from Planpraz to the Le Brevent summit. The system was rebuilt four times, in four different decades: the 1920s, 1950s, the 1970s, and finally in 2008. Aboard you’ll join the company of fellow skiers and local residents who use the cable cars to commute between the slopes. However, you don't need to ski or live in the mountains to be stunned by the majesty of the peaks out the cable car window. With our international travel planner, Chamonix attractions like Brevent Cable Car can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Great views of the Mont Black ridge. Worth going up from Planprez all the way to Brevet. You can also walk it but its pretty steep. There are restaurants on both places. On Planorez there is a stunning suntan balcony. Must sit there soak the sun with a nice Chardonnay.
  • Easy to REACH, worth every minute. Great direct view to mont blanc.
