Brevent Cable Car, Chamonix

4.7
#1 of 34 in Winter Sports in Haute-Savoie
Brevent Cable Car offers 2,525 m (8,284 ft) views from Planpraz to the Le Brevent summit. The system was rebuilt four times, in four different decades: the 1920s, 1950s, the 1970s, and finally in 2008. Aboard you’ll join the company of fellow skiers and local residents who use the cable cars to commute between the slopes. However, you don't need to ski or live in the mountains to be stunned by the majesty of the peaks out the cable car window. With our international travel planner, Chamonix attractions like Brevent Cable Car can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • After a very long walk back to the cable car can be accompanied by a fitness at the altitude restaurant. This isn't a gourmet but nice restaurant and good and the panorama!
