Vallée Blanche Cable Car

Local nameTelecabine Panoramique Mont-Blanc
LocationChamonix-Mont-Blanc, France

The Vallée Blanche Cable Car,, is a passenger cable car linking a mountain peak above Courmayeur to a peak above Chamonix by passing over the Mont Blanc massif, in the Alps. The engineering was developed by Vittorio Zignoli of Polytechnic University of Turin. No helicopters were used, and all the workers were chosen among locals and alpine guides. After a construction period of four years, it began service in 1958.

The cable car connects the peaks of Aiguille du Midi and Pointe Helbronner, over a distance of some 5 km. This tourist attraction spans the valleys between the two peaks, high above the Mont Blanc Tunnel, which carries automotive passenger and freight traffic under the two peaks.
