Chamonix: bus to Brevent ski lift?

Jump to last reply

We're going to be in Chamonix in March, and we're deciding where to stay.

We're beginner to intermediate level skiers, so we figure we'll spend at least a couple of days on the Brevent-Flagere area (we're in town for a wedding - I know the best skiing is Vallee Blanche for those at the advanced level, but we're not there yet so we figure we'll enjoy what we can!).

My question is: which bus (if any) goes directly to the Brevent ski lift?

We planned to stay right in the pedestrian area of the town, but heard it's a good 15-20 min walk to the Brevent lift up a steep slope while carrying ski gear in winter weather, which sounds like a less-than-pleasant hike. I keep seeing info SAY the buses go to the lifts, but the map on the official bus website (http://chamonix.montblancbus.com/en) doesn't actually show any routes going up that way. If they don't go there, maybe we'll choose to stay closer to the lift and just walk into town for dinner when we're not carrying ski gear with us.

Does anyone have first-hand experience there that could help confirm? Thanks in advance!
