La Herse - 6pers. High speed chairlift (detachable) 1/8

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

As of the 2014/2015 season, the modern 10-person Plan Joran gondola lift takes guests from the base up to the ski resort. A cable car lift also leads from the base up to the peak in two sections via the Lognan middle station. However, there is usually a long wait for the second lift. You can avoid the wait by purchasing a reservation card here, but you must be present for boarding at the time printed on the card. In the ski resort itself, there is a 15-person circulating ropeway lift as well as chairlifts. The 6-person Herse chairlift is relatively modern, but the rest of the lifts are a bit older.
