Courmayeur, Italy


The Skyway Monte Bianco is a mind bending tribute to human ingenuity and fortitude. The futuristic cable car, finished in May of 2015 after 4 years and 110 million Euros, juts skyward from an equally impressive base station in Entrèves, Italy. The tramcar has the capacity to fit 80 people. It ascends 6,489’ in 10 minutes, with a brief stop at a midway station, and the entire translucent car does two full rotations on the way up. The new Skyway replaces the historic Helbronner cable car, originally constructed during World War II. It is built primarily for sightseers (an estimated 300,000 visits annually) to be able to access this awe inspiring cathedral of granite and ice but for skiers and alpinists, it is fast easy access to a vast, wild, uncontrolled world of high alpine terrain.
