The views and the snow were both fantastic, though getting from the top of the lift to the skiable snow can require crampons. Options for skiing are endless and riding the cog rail back to Chamonix was a hoot.

I was expecting a wonderful view, which I experienced. Laudation for a great organization, we waited for only 10 minutes in both way. The cable car goes to the first level, where the second level crosses. On both levels there is a toilet, on the upper level there is a restaurant, a souvenir shop and an exhibition. Is very cold...

The ticket price for the ski lifts may seem pricey for 60EUR but after reaching the top of the Aiguille du Midi on a clear day, its all worth it. Even though it is sunny, the temperature is very low at the top so appropriate clothing is important. The amazing views of Mont Blanc and the Alps in every direction... More

Skiing the Vallee Blanche from here is one of the best ski runs in the world, bring a packed lunch, but you must be an accomplished off-piste skiier

If your scared of heights this is not for you! You have to take two cable cars which get pretty packed. When you get to the top you can go to 'step into the void' and also see/picture some stunning views. Needs to be on a clear day so you can see everything properly and get the full experience! Definitely... More

This is an experience not to be missed. The ticket price may seem excessive but if you stand on the top of the Aiguille du Midi on a clear day you get the most amazing views of Mont Blanc and the mountain range in every direction, it then seems more than worth the price. Beware of the altitude, many people... More

The most amazing experience at 4841 meters elevation, parallel to Mont Blanc that is less than a mile away. Chose a sunny day, and get to see a most spectacular view of the Alps from Italy, to France, and to Switzerland, all together at once.

Excellent experience. Alpes experience just some cable cars away from Chamonix. Walk on the void and take a deep breath of fresh mountain air! The view is also stunning!

Absolutely beautiful. A must if you're in Chamonix. We had this included in our ski-pass and went first thing in the morning. What an amazing world we have- view of the top of the world. I will take my children next I visit. Dress warm- it is incredibly cold.
