Very enjoyabe way to access the Grand Balcon Sud and stunning views. This cable car is very smooth and doesn't sway like some.( at least not on the day we were there)

You currently cannot do anything once arriving at the top. Literally all hikes and additional lifts/trains are closed once you get off of the cable car.

Most of the additional lifts/trams will be closed all year due to winter damage (though it’s not reported anywhere) and the hiking is closed until at least June 23rd or possibly later depending on snow melt.

We rode up the Flegere cable car which allowed us to ski the Aiguilles Rouges. The best part was the lack of people! Great views, even better if you do a little exploring!

In summer time the Flegere takes you to tracks on the Southern side of Chamonix. You can access the Grand Balcon South, Lac Blanc and L'index from this.

...for history buffs interested in what skiing was like in the dark ages. This tram should have been replaced decades ago to deal with the increased demand above 1960 levels. Expect to wait for hours--literally. Anywhere but Chamonix, this lift would have put the management company out of business. They should be ashamed.
