Mont Blanc Skyway cable car

Within a month a new Mont Blanc cable car will be opened. It seems like new high-altitude experiences is waiting for us. Just check the video!

The new cable car to Pointe Helbronner at Mont Blanc should finish at the beginning of June. It offers everyone the opportunity to climb to the heart of the Mont Blanc Massif (an experience that is described as the Eighth Wonder of the World). The scenery is absolutely majestic. From Courmayeur you can still reach Rifugio Torino, where the view of Mont Blanc is assured thanks to the panoramic terrace, via the “Trail of the Giants” with an easy walk you can reach “New Rifugio Torino”. Finally, the horizon is marked by Europe’s famous “4000” peaks: Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and the Gran Paradiso.

The new Mont Blanc ropeways will climb to Pointe Helbronner in two segments along a new line, replacing the old cableways, which will be demolished only once all the work has been completed. The new facilities will be constructed mainly in steel and glass, with spacious panoramic areas at the stations and rotating spherical glass cable cars.

The driving force behind all this is aimed at amazing visitors through the use of technology, but with a particular focus on highlighting Mont Blanc’s natural scenery. The cable cars will be equipped with a system that will allow them to rotate, offering visitors a true 360° view of the whole area.

At Pointe Helbronner, at 3452 m, a round terrace of 14 meters diameter will be constructed, also offering a 360 degree view of Mont Blanc’s peak (4810 m), of the Dent du Géant and of the extraordinary Vallée Blanche.
