Viewing platforms and walkways are all the rage in the Alps with many being constructed. They offer another activity out on the slopes and are perfect for the Instagram generation. If open in the summer months they draw tourists up the mountain. NEW
This summer work began at the top of Mont Fort to create a scenic panoramic platform.
Located at 3,330m it is scheduled to open this winter.
“Visitors can now enjoy an exceptional 360-degree panorama of the entire alpine range from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn,” said the resort.
This new infrastructure will complete a package of already available attractions in the vicinity, including a Via Cordata, Via Ferrata and the Mont4Zipline.
