Brevent Cable Car, Chamonix

(550+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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.
