Thanks to the Aiguille du Midi cable car from Chamonix centre, you can enter into the heart of the Mont-Blanc massif. The first stop, the Plan de l’Aiguille, is situated at around 2300 metres of altitude and has beautiful views of the Bossons glacier, the Aiguilles de Chamonix, La Verte, Les Drus and Mont-Blanc. At the summit, at 3842m of altitude, discover a majestic landscape including Mont-Blanc, lots of other Alpine summits in Italy and Switzerland, and the Chamonix valley at your feet. There are two restaurants for you to choose from: Le 3842 (Maître Restaurateur restaurant) or Le Summit 3842 (cafe/takeaway). The Aiguille du Midi is a one of a kind experience. Skiers and their guides will be going down the famous “Vallée Blanche” descent while the not-so-brave watch them. There is also the “Tube” exhibition and various terraces with different viewpoints. One experience not to be missed is the lift to the summit terrace and the “Step into the Void” .
During high season, the Aiguille du Midi is very popular, so we advise you book a place in advance.
Brévent can be accessed in just a few minutes from Chamonix centre via the Planpraz cable car. Arrive at 2000 metres of altitude and enjoy a bite to eat in one of our restaurants. You can choose from La Bergerie de PlanPraz (which has a Maître Restaurateur title), le Comptoir de Planpraz (snacks and takeaway food) and the Brev’Bar. The Planpraz area, located at the top of the cable car, is accessible to skiers and non-skiers alike. It is the ideal place to meet up and have a good time.
From Les Praz, 2km from Chamonix, take the new cable car built in the summer of 2019 to Flégère. Our team is there to welcome you all year. The L’Adret restaurant (Maître Restaurateur) and our takeaway snack bar, Tendance Foehn, can easily be accessed from the top station. Pedestrians can also access the area easily. For skiers, this area is accessible from Les Praz and Brévent.
From Argentière, take the Plan Joran cable car to the Grands-Montets ski area.
This is THE resort for freeride skiing! As its north-facing, the Grand-Montets gets good snow cover. Why not take a break after a morning’s ski or between runs at one of our restaurants? On the Lognan plateau there is Le Spot cafe, while at Plan Joran there is La Table restaurant (Maître Restaurateur) which offers self-service and a takeaway menu. NB: the Lognan cable car and the Grand-Montets summit lift are currently closed following the fire in autumn 2018.
This area can be accessed by cable car from le Tour (11km from Chamonix) or the village of Vallorcine (15km from Chamonix). Located on the Swiss border, the Domaine de Balme is a peaceful, quiet spot. For a bite to eat, head to the Chalet de Charamillon mountain restaurant where you can eat in or take away. Enjoy a stunning view of the Chamonix valley, the Mont-Blanc massif and the Aiguilles Rouges from the terrace or inside the restaurant, thanks to the big picture window.
The Domaine de Balme is a varied ski area with easy runs and quiet off-piste bowls. It is one of the best areas for families. Walkers are also able to reach the area from the Charamillon lift.
