Le Brevent Cable Car, Chamonix
(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Le 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 Le Brevent Cable Car a centerpiece of your Chamonix vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Chamonix itinerary builder.

  • I have been on this cable car a few times and the scenery is breathtaking. The ride up was easy and exciting and recommend visiting this attraction. 
  • Last July we took the Brévent cable car to the South balcony and went back down by the Flegere cable car. Nice ride with bonus Mont Blanc and more than 4000 in front of us. Great view, easy hike, low elevation.

  • Area connected by a cable car to the Flégère. Great for beginners and experienced. Do not descend too late to avoid the queue...
