The final 400m over the glacier to the 3,329m Mont Fort are also covered by a cable car from Col des Gentianes. A 20m stone stairway leads up to the peak itself with a summit cross and a clear view of the glacier and high mountains.
Particularly attractive are the notorious full-moon and sunrise trips to Mont Fort for early risers!
The cableways can be used for a round trip through Verbier and Nendaz; mountain bikers take on the “Tour du Mont Fort” (tdmf.ch) with long descents and spectacular passages. Altitude: 3329m
