The Brevent gondola has been updated in recent years to give efficient high-speed access to the ski area, almost from the centre of Chamonix town.
The lift station is just a 5 minute walk from the tourist office (albeit it uphill!) and is also on the main bus route.
Brevent provides a wide variety of slopes from green nursery slopes all the way up to the black Charles Bozon piste, accessed by cable car. It is also linked to the Flegere domain, so you can ski/snowboard two sunny south-facing areas in one day, on the same lift pass!
The Brevent gondola and cable car are both open in summer, when the area is popular with hikers, mountain bikers and rock climbers.
Also available at the lift pass office are piste maps, bus (& train where appropriate) timetables, weather forecasts, ski condition details and avalanche bulletins. You can also purchase the necessary mountain/ski insurance here if you do not already have the correct cover.
The staff speak English and all major credit cards are accepted here.
