The new Mont Blanc ropeway

The new Mont Blanc Doppelmayr ropeways 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 are constructed mainly in steel and glass, with spacious panoramic areas at the stations and rotating spherical glass cabins. 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 cabins are equipped with a system that allows them to rotate, offering visitors a true 360° view of the whole area. At Pointe Helbronner, at 3452 metres above sea level, a round terrace of 14 meters diameter offers a 360 degree view of Mont Blanc’s peak (4810 metres), of the Dent du Géant and of the extraordinary Vallée Blanche.
