Brevent is the closest summer lift to the centre of Chamonix and its impressive rocky summit rises to 2,525m above sea level.
You can access the mid station at 1,999m either by the Plan Praz gondola or on foot, up the steep zig-zagging path that's visible from the town centre otherwise knows as the Vertical Kilometre.
From mid station you can take the Brevent cable car straight to the top of the mountain and start various hikes from there or just take in the incredible views as you look across to the Mont Blanc massif.
