La Herse - 6pers. High speed chairlift (detachable)

All lifts/cable cars Argentière/Les Grands Montets (Chamonix)

Directly to:

Access from the base to the peak is with two cable car lifts via the Lognan middle station. There are long waiting times at the second section, but you can reserve seats for a fee. You must then be at the entrance at the reserved time. Up in the ski resort itself, there is a 15-person circulating ropeway lift as well as chairlifts. The Herse 6-person chairlift is relatively modern. All of the other lifts are older.
