Just go on a clear day and have the view of your life! We took the cable car and it wasn't a long wait cos it was off season. We met a few hell skiers at the same time probably trying to ski over to France or do the sky ski!. We stopped halfway to view the rocks collection. Nothing much but it was also for our body to get acclimatized. Then the last led took us all the way for the best view of the roof of the alps. As the weather was perfect, we could see as far as the eye can see and it's one of those memorable views that stays with you for life!

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
