Our first day heading up to the mountains to start climbing up Les Grands Montets. Chamonix accesses the surrounding mountains through an elaborate system of cablecars - some of the nicest, most epic spans I've ever seen. Whereas most gondolas I've ridden on use supporting poles ever couple hundred meters, the cables in Chamonix are strung directly from the top to the bottom, with occasionally placed support poles. Truly epic.
