Access to the cable car to the highest point of Brévent is now closed to unaccompanied skiers, even ski touring, due to the dangerous conditions observed on the Charles Bozon black piste.
Piste Charles Bozon, Le Brévent - Chamonix in 360 VR | Piste View - 26 march 2018
Since the start of this 2022-2023 winter season, the mythical Charles-Bozon piste which descends from the summit of Brévent has not been groomed due to a landslide, which occurred last summer, which prevented snow groomers from climbing up to 2525 meters above sea level.
According to Le Dauphine, with the passage of skiers, dangerous bumps have formed everywhere in this descent.
Several rescues and accidents have already taken place in the sector, in particular because the skiers don't have a good level of skiing for this high mountain and they ventured despite the dissuasive warnings of the employees of this ski area.
Access to the summit closed to snow sports enthusiasts until further notice
Due to the dangerous conditions, the access to the summit is closed to snow sports enthusiasts until further notice.
Only skiers accompanied by professionals will be able to reach the summit of Brévent in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (Haute-Savoie).
Note that the Brévent cable car remains open only to pedestrians who wish to enjoy an exceptional view of the Mont-Blanc massif.
