Skyway Monte Bianco: at very high altitude is the most spectacular location of Italy
The cable Skyway Monte Bianco has won the first edition of the Bea-Best Location Awards, in the category Unexpected Location. The contest has taken into consideration the most interesting spaces and locations in Italy, that distinguish themselves for their characteristics and their multi-purpose nature.
“The jury – reads a note – expressed its judgement in favour of Skyway Monte Bianco precisely for its extraordinary spectacularity.” “The potential of the new and futuristic facility found among the glaciers – explains the Regional Counsillor for Tourism, Aurelio Marguerettaz – was already noted by the organisers of the award. The award obtained by the funicular establishment, which became to an extent the symbol of the Valle d’Aosta that looks to the future, inserts itself in a vaster policy of promotion of the Valle d'Aosta. A policy that aims at making the region a centre of excellence for hospitality in unique and symbolic locations.” Defined the eighth marvel of the world, Skyway Monte Bianco is a truly unique scenery, ideal for organising sensational meetings, events, tv filming, photographic sets and any kind of event.
Situated at high altitude, it is a jewel of design and avant-garde technological innovation that offers particular spaces and multiple services: a conference room of 150 places with view over the Monte Bianco, two modular meeting rooms, two restaurants supporting the conference rooms, a bistrot at the station Punta Helbronner, an extraordinary panoramic terrace with 360° view over the highest peaks of the Alps and two hospitality stations. Particularly, at 2,200 metres at the area of the Pavillion du Mont Fréty one can find the Auditorium Delle Alpi, a conference room of latest generation set up with 150 places and equipped with all comforts: advanced technological systems for projections, equipment necessary for a conference for up to 8 speakers, a workstation and 80 earphones for simultaneous translations, wi-fi connection, direction room, wardrobe and welcoming hall.
Also worth of note is that the 360°panoramic terrace at the station Punta Helbronner can be used as stage for an event on the Roof of Europe. With 14 metres diameter, the circular terrace will become the scenario for meetings that will leave out of breath thanks to a unique view in the world. To complete the offer and the attractions of Skyway Monte Bianco, la Cave Mont Blanc, the cellar in which wine is made with an experimental method at over 2,000 metres, high altitude shopping, the hall dedicated to a permanent exhibition of crystals and, during the summer months, the Botanic Garden Saussurea with its 900 species of alpine plants that are incredibly rare and the playing ground.
