  • Monte Bianco cable cars to be replaced!

    29/11/2011

    April 2012 will see the beginning of the preperation work for the construction site of what will become a new technological wonder on the Valle d’Aosta mountains and a world class engineering project in Italy!

    The new Mont Blanc ropeways will climb to Pointe Helbronner in two segments along a new cable, replacing the old cableways, which will be demolished straight after the work has been finished.

    The new facilities will be constructed mostly  in steel and glass, with spacious panoramic areas at the stations and rotating spherical glass cable cars. A very similar sort of look of the London eye.

    The driving force behind all this is aimed at amazing visitors through the use of technology, but with a particular focus on highlighting Mont Blanc’s natural magical scenery. The cable cars will be equipped with a system that will allow them to rotate around, offering visitors a true 360° view of the Mont Blanc area.

    At Pointe Helbronner, at 3452 metres above sea level, a round terrace of 15 meters diameter will be constructed, also offering a 360 degree view of Mont Blanc’s peak (4810 metres), of the Dent du Géant and of the extraordinary Vallée Blanche of Chamonix.
