Punta Helbronner: Cable Car opening

 
 

The new cable car top station at the Helbronner opened to the public last weekend.  The construction of the "two-section" cableway system started in 2011, and connects Courmayeur to Pointe Helbronner (Punta Helbronner). With a much higher carrying capacity and rotating spherical glass cable cars, the visitors can enjoy the spectacular landscape of the Mont Blanc Massif in an improved comfort!
