Le Brévent information
The highest peak on the western side of the Chamonix Valley, Le Brévent (2525m) has tremendous views of the Mont Blanc massif, myriad hiking trails through a nature reserve, ledges to paraglide from and some vertiginous black runs. Reach it by linking the Télécabine de Planpraz , 400m west of the tourist office, with the Téléphérique du Brévent . Plenty of family-friendly trails begin at Planpraz (2000m), and the Liaison cable car connects to the adjacent ski fields of La Flégère.
