Skiless Mountain View

The restaurants and boutiques are all excellent, but if you come to the Alps to enjoy the stunning mountain scenery but do not want too much walking then you will be delighted to find that the Monte Bianco Skyway cable car makes the mountains accessible. for all.

First built as a way to connect the Italian Courmayeur with the city of Chamonix in France in the early 1930s, the original wires were destroyed by French fighter planes during the Second World War.

After the war, a station opened at 3300m, but the engineers could not reach the peak due to the glacier ice that shifted. New in 2015 the highest station in Punta Helbronner finally opened at 3466m.

Today the Skyway Monte Bianco takes visitors from Courmayeur, up through a series of stations, to the summit of Mont Blanc with a view of the highest peaks of the Alps. Go Sky High & Ski Free in Courmayeur
