This winter, would you like an unusual means of transport to go skiing? Get on the train! Built from 1906 to 1912, the Tramway du Mont-Blanc takes you directly to the slopes!
The highest cogwheel train in France, it comprises carriages bearing charming first names (Anne, Jeanne, Marie) for a timeless journey.
In summer, from the Fayet SNCF station (580m) or the village of Saint-Gervais (820m), the Mont-Blanc Tramway allows you to access the Nid d'Aigle ("Eagle’s Nest", 2372m), gateway to the Mont-Blanc royal route, with an exceptional viewpoint on the Bionnassay glacier.
In winter, from Le Fayet or Saint-Gervais, the Mont-Blanc Tramway opens the doors to the friendly and family-friendly ski area of Les Houches-St Gervais (1800m): the magnificent Bellevue plateau, which bears its name well!
At the foot of the roof of Europe, discover a unique view of the surrounding peaks. Enjoy sunny terraces and slopes for all skill levels, with plenty of easy slopes for children or beginners.
On the Les Houches side, overlooking the Chamonix valley, test yourself on the legendary "Verte des Houches" piste, home to the prestigious Kandahar, a World Cup ski event. On the Saint-Gervais side, overlooking the Arve valley, find slopes that will give you the pleasure of skiing facing the setting sun.
Finally, if you prefer walking, snowshoeing or Nordic skiing, you will find plenty to make you melt with joy!
Whatever your riding style, your level or your age, this tramway called desire is the guarantee of a day that will fill you with happiness!
A happiness that will grow thanks to a new ambitious, modern and environmentally friendly project! Soon, our legendary Tramway du Mont-Blanc will give you new experiences.
