Worth visiting in good weather ! This is in the Italian side of mountain and the funivia is covered, not open one.....

We spent a week around the Mont Blanc in France and Italy, so we had very clear days, and cloudy days. We were in Courmayeur on a nice but cloudy day (invisible summit all day, but a lot of sunshine otherwise). So we decided only to go up to the first stop of the old lift. I'd say it's about time the whole thing is renovated, when you compare this with some of the infrastructure in France. Nevertheless, the place has a certain charm and the price is reasonable. Even going up "just" to the first station is well worth it to see the lesser summits and to view the Aosta valley. You really should decide on going to the intermediate station or the top station based on the weather - I think we would have been disappointed paying the full charge to the top and then not actually seeing much of the glacier and the summits due to the clouds. But I agree with most reviewers, this IS a must when you are on "the sunny side of Mont Blanc" as they call it here.
It's a shame they want you to pay an additional fee to visit the botanical garden up at the first station - that should really be included in the price...

Even in July there was still snow and ice at the Refuggio Torino Nuovo, 200 steps above the end of the cable car. The views were stunning but the cable cars were crowded and cramped, which is presumably why a new cable car is currently under construction.

Nice but Aguille de Midi from Chamonix is better. Worth it if in Courmayeur and it is possible to do non-stop round trip from Helbronner to Aguille de Midi - over the tops of the mountains - that is fantastic on a clear day

When in Courmayeur, you cannot miss a ride on this triple Funivia.
I did it in winter with my children, and we were the only ones who had no guide for the ski-cross on the Mèr de Glace on the Mont Blanc.
Even if you do not plan to ski, if you are luncky with the weather you can enjoy a wonderful sight and you can stop at an intermediate station and have fun with the rafts on the snow (my children loved it).
