This is a mountain in the Alps is reached from French Chamonix & Italian Courmayeur .. The Longest Skiable descent in Europe ( & not affected by Brexit , yet ). If you can Ski to intermediate level & your medium fit You Will Experience The Most Beautiful Exclusive ski/snowboard run I've yet found . 22km through glaciated valleys to a rack railway train back to Chamonix or you could ski through the trees home to Chamonix. The toughest part of your descent is the roped walk as you exit the cablecar to reach the start. You could hire crampons or hang on & enjoy..Something to add to your bucket list ... I Know an intermediate skier did it 3 times in one day.. The system do advise a Ski guide as you will be skiing between the glaciers moguls ice n powder Challenging Not pisted But helicopters fly overhead But you may be charged for pickups. FANTASTIC I'll Be Back.. Lorry n Nula x

Possibly more spectacular than a visit to Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Oberland since you ride serenely above the glaciers in an enclosed cable car rather than look out a train window or walk around the station. From the perspective of the Panorama cable car the views of the peaks and massive ocean of glaciers is simply serene. Other trips near Chamonix, such as the Mer de Glace train trip, Brevent cable car, or Tramway de Mont Blanc to Nid d'Aigle, all show tragic evidence of melting ice, but from the cable car it is possible to see the mountain more like it would have been in the past.

This is a very expensive cable car ride, but it takes you first to a half-way station and then (via smaller cable car) to 12600ft.

The views of Mont Blanc and the Chamonix valley are spectacular, and with the sun out in August, and literally freezing temperatures, it was somehow warm enough to get away with a T-shirt and thin top on.

Be aware that people book a slot on the first cable car days in advance, and without this, you have to queue up for a time-slot later in the day. This applies from 8am but you can (if you can’t sleep) catch it without a ticket (but still paying) from 6:30 to 8am.

We arrived around 9am and were given a slot of 10:30 so went to have a walk around town in the meantime.

At the top, there are 2 other things to do.

There is an elevator up to a lookout, which had a 20 minute wait time, and another cable car that takes you across a hanging valley of snow. This, however, is another (approx) €30 per person, and has another 20 minute wait.

We decided to go up today even though it looked a bit hit and miss with the weather. I went 10 years ago and there's so much more up there now.
We had sun snow and clouds but amazing experience.
To warm up we went into the cafeteria where it wasn't clear if you picked the food or were served. The woman just pointed and grunted at the cash desk so my husband put some soup in a pot and took it to the desk to pay.
She slammed it down and told us off like children!!!!!
I have never met someone in customer service so rude and actually upset me!
There was no one around to complain to so I hope they read this!!
She should not be working there!
Zero out of 10 for her and 10 for the rest of the day
