Pointe Helbronner is served by the Funivie Monte Bianco, a cable car from next to Entrèves, a village near Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley.  Both the cable cars, Funivia du Monte Bianco from La Palud (Italy) and the Panoramic Mont Blanc gondola from Chamonix (France), reach its summit.  The station's platform here has fantastic views and straddles the border of France and Italy.

Definately worth doing!
