Made the day

The Brevent Flegere area was crowded and had little snow. Hence limited chance to ski outside slopes. A few runs with the Brevent lift and skiing down the black piste made the day.

I had bought a one-day unlimited pass, which allowed me to ride the lifts at any ski area in Chamonix (I don't ski). It was a perfectly clear, cold winter Monday in the Alps. The vistas are simply beautiful and really almost beyond description. From the top of Le Brevent, the whole valley is on display, with Mont Blanc looming... More

Cant say that it must see when we bought the tickets at the counter and asked to the top she said it is closed, what was disappoint when we got up and it work. Hopefully one man gave us his tickets as he didn't want to go up, nothing special, except black slope for the courageous ))

The more famous Aquile du Midi was closed on our last day in Chamonix due to wind, but this was a worthy stand in on the other side of the valley that took us up to the top of Le Brevant and afforded us views back across the valley to Mont Blanc.

The views were amazing when accessing this side of the valley! Gives you an amazing view of the valley as the sun rolls in, despite all the scratches amongst the carts which affect your views when taking photos though.. Cars run regularly so you aren't sat waiting for hours before you get to head up the mountain for some fresh... More

Did this whilst skiing. Take the normal cable car up to the lower slopes then change cable cars and go up further. The views from the restaurant here was outstanding. It was like having lunch at the top of the world! Obvious not cheap! Mont blanc beer was 6-7 euros. But you know this will be the case. We found... More

We loved the ride up the mou8ntain and acroos from one peak to another on this cable car. We had lunch at the restaurant on top and loved the amazing views. Do this!

This is a great way of accessing the north side of the valley. You can get out half way if you wish and have a rewarding walk to the top. The cafe is clean and has spectacular views of the Mont Blanc range.
