Queued an hour to get up and another hour to get down. This lift needs some serious additional capacity / speed. Worse than annoying. That's two hours of skiing missed in spite of buying a very expensive lift pass. Staff were friendly enough, managed capacity well to avoid overcrowding, and kept the lift running well after dark to get everyone... More

Not much snow about, and here at Flegere where there is some this is the queue for the cable car. Expect 1 hour plus wait to get up and the same down if your not back on it by 3pm.

Waited for 1.5 hours to get cable car up to ski. Even the staff were having a full on argument about it at the bottom in front of all those waiting! We paid £70 for 4 hours skiing (family of 3)and only had two and the queues coming down meant we had to wait in the cafe for 2.5 hours.... More

Affordable alternative to Aiguille du Midi which enables you to see cross-valley views of Mount Blanc on a clear day. It's approximately 16 euro (as compared to 60 euro) and there are some nice hikes at it end point that can last about a half day, such as the hike to lac blanc.

We had amazing views of Mont Blanc panorama on the way up/down and during our walk. It is only 4 stars because there were no signpost available for the trail to Lac Blanc. The map they offered at the ticket box was confusing.

If you like hiking, the top station is excellent starting point for many alpine hikes, the most famous is le lac blanc. You need to be in good physical shape to do it and be well equipped. Please bring with you water and some food. Also some hat and sunglasses are needed.

We have been in Aiguille du Midi and in this one (Flegere). The first is busy, very expensive (200+ euro for a family with 3 children), and the trails options there are limited. The Flegere cable car is cool, it doesn't take you to 3,000m+, but the place it will get you to is ideal for tracks. The price is... More

The Flegere cable car was the starting point for a lot of our hikes. It got very busy and it was too crowded. We did like how close it was to Chamonix.

The cablecars in the Chamonix area are very nice and works very good, the only problem is that it´s to expensive. I think it´s much more expensive here than in the rest of the alps.
