Cash desks are unaccessible. To go to the Charamillon cable car (little cabins) in Le Tour, go around on the right side of the cash desks (over a very steep slope). There is then an automatic ramp. You will need to fold up your wheel chair in order to get into the cabins.
When you arrive, you will find a short gravel descent (in summer).
You will have access to the “Chalet de Charamillon” if accompanied (because there is a
step to get on the terrace). There are also adapted toilets (access below
the building with some help, then it is a little bit steep. You can then have access to the Autannes chair lift, but you will need some help at the arrival. From there, if you are accompanied, you will be able to go to the Balme pass (Col de Balme) on a footpath (an about 20 minutes’ walk).
