The price was about $30.00 or so, but worth it. Also a great view of Mont Blanc. We did not go up to Mont Blanc because of the weather.

Many people didn't know their ticket allowed them to go to the top... don't miss out on that! Quick and easy hikes are accessible from the very top, as well as the best views.

Fast ascent on the cable car with spectacular views of Chamonix below and across to Mont Blanc, Aigulle de Midi and the Bossons glacier.

A ride with a nice view. Big and spacious cable cars that take you to nice slopes. Lots of people in the afternoon trying to get down.
