Brevent Cable Car, Chamonix

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Brevent Cable Car a centerpiece of your Chamonix vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Chamonix itinerary builder.

  • We could catch some glimpses on the way up of the spectacular scenery outside but it was hard to see much as it was very busy. The lifts at Brevant had been off in the morning and the backlog seemed t...  more »
  • The cable car will take you to the top. There's a very nice restaurant at the peak. Whether you just want a restaurant and you can go for a peak for skiing landscape. For skiing turns out to be a difficult track to the runway ch. Bozon but definitely recommended for Vista.

  • Initially our departure would have been on Flégère but closed because of strong wind. We were advised to take packages to the Flégère crates before going to the Brévent, good... Arrival to the parking at the Brévent. Arrival in resort to enjoy the snow, views. Nickel! Used the gondola link to go on Flégère, a little wait but reasonable! Nice day. Back at 15:30 with a bit of Cork to the gondola but good hourly slots eventually.
