Gondola from Pointe Helbronner to Aiguille du Midi and back?

We need to know if we can take the gondola from Pointe Helbronner to Aiguille du Midi and back (round trip from Pointe Helbronner).

We will be going to Pointe Helbronner via SkyWay from Courmayeaur at the end of June 2017. We want to continue over the glacier towards Chamonix, and then back to Pointe Helbronner with the said gondola. If this is possible, is there a timetable for Pointe Helbronner? And how long takes the round trip? Thanks.

The gondola from Hebronner to the Aiguille du Midi operates in summer time only. It should be running at the time of your visit, but timetables and prices are not available on line at the moment.

Thanks. I am assuming we can take a round-trip Pointe-Helbronner->Aiguilledumidi -> back to Point Helbronner?... We need to get back to our car which we will be parking somewhere in Courmayeur, where this whole trip over the mountains starts.

You can certainly get a roundtrip ticket. Or you could continue by cable car all the way to Chamonix - perhaps take a look at the town and get back to Courmayeur by bus.

Thanks again! We went to Chamonix last year and took the Aiguille du midi cable car up to the very top - 3800m. Unfortunately it was just after the accident with the Panoramic Mont Blanc's tangled cables and we could not explore the portion to Pointe Helbronner, which was closed.

We want to do it the other way around this year and take the new SkyWay to Pointe Helbronner from Italy, which should be fun. Then take the cable towards Aiguille du midi and back.

Yes, there is a cable car from Pointe Helbronner to Courmayeur in Italy (or vice-versa). It is called Skyway Monte Bianco. It was opened recently (2015), and we will be taking it this summer from Courmayeaur and back. It runs every 20 minutes.

Some links for you below, regarding timetable and prices - note that you have to select the English button on top right to see English text!

On Tripadvisor.com there is "Montenvers Mer de glace" as a tourist attraction in Chamonix and it has lots of recent reviews and ratings you can consult and get an idea if it is for you or not.

Hope this helps.

lizzie_travelers, when the summer timetables have eventually been uploaded on www.montblancresort.com you will see that it's possible to travel by cable car all the way from Chamonix to Courmayeur on a through ticket. It does not come cheap, but it sure is an experience. You can then return to Chamonix by bus.

Hi, we are planning a trip in Sept-2018 from Courmayeur like what you planned. If you made the trip in 2017, please advise your experience. I was not able to find schedule/price of the cable car yet. Thank you!
