LES BOSSONS GLACIER
Focal point of the Chamonix Valley, for both mountaineers & visitors. The glacier is the biggest ice-fall in the Alps (3 630m of vertical) &, as a result of the gradient, is also the fastest moving glacier between 1m & 1m 50 each day). In 1786, it was the historical route chosen by Jacques Balmat & Dr Paccard to reach the Europe’s summit, le Mont-Blanc. Les Bossons chair-lift (1 102m long) was built in 1960. In 1962, it was host to the World Championships & local boy Charles BOZON won gold in the slalom.

Dear customers and partners,
The engineering works currently taking place on the motor-cable of the "2nd stage Plan de l’Aiguille - Aiguille du Midi" cable car are going to require further complementary works. These works will push back the reopening of the lift system beyond the date originally announced.
The Aiguille du Midi cable car will now be closed until Friday 1st June inclusive.
During this time, the Chamonix - Planpraz cable car (Brévent) will be open every day, offering visitors the opportunity to appreciate panoramic views over the Mont Blanc range.
-First departure at 09:00
-Last departure from Chamonix at 16:00
-Last return to Planpraz at 16:30
The car park and bus stop for rapid drop-offs, situated at the cable car base station, are open.
The Planpraz cable car will now reopen for the summer season on the 16th June, instead of the 9th June, in order to carry out the necessary maintenance work originally scheduled for May.
The Compagnie du Mont Blanc remain at your disposal for any clarification or additional information.
