A cable car will take you up to the Lognan plateau at 1,972m and in the winter you can also take the Plan Joran gondola. From Lognan, there is a further cable car that takes you to the Aiguille des Grands Montets at 3300m, where you can see incredible panoramic views of the Mont Blanc range, the Mer de Glace and the Chamonix valley. This is also the departure point for mountaineers heading to the Aiguille Verte.

The ski area is extensive and varied, renowned for its challenging black runs and it’s huge off-piste areas. The summer offers hiking, mountain biking and paragliding. It is also the departure point for climbers and mountaineers for the high peaks in the Argentiere basin.

Getting Here


Grands Montets can be accessed easily by bus or train and there's also a huge car park at the bottom lift station which can get pretty crowded in winter. We recommend if you're driving there to arrive as early as possible. The bust stops directly in front of the lift station, or it's a short walk on foot from the train stop.
