You currently cannot do anything once arriving at the top. Literally all hikes and additional lifts/trains are closed once you get off of the cable car. Most of the additional lifts/trams will be closed all year due to winter damage (though it’s not reported anywhere)...More

We rode up the Flegere cable car which allowed us to ski the Aiguilles Rouges. The best part was the lack of people! Great views, even better if you do a little exploring!

In summer time the Flegere takes you to tracks on the Southern side of Chamonix. You can access the Grand Balcon South, Lac Blanc and L'index from this.

So I know for sure you can get a pass on line. You need to look at the Chamonix cable car website. compagniedumontblanc if it is open then look at the site. Enjoy the place. I love going there!
