Les Grands Montets cable car (otherwise known as GM) is located an easy walk from Argentiere town centre and is also on the main bus line, as well as being very near to Argentiere train station.
It provides access to one of Chamonix's highest and steepest ski areas, between 1,235 and 3,300 metres. It is often the first lift in the area to open at the start of the winter season and the last to close at the end, due to its high altitude and reliable snow cover.
You can buy your ski passes directly from the office here. Also available at the lift pass office are piste maps, bus and train timetables, weather forecasts, ski condition details and avalanche bulletins. You can also purchase the necessary mountain/ski insurance here if you do not already have the correct cover. The lifts are open in summer and winter.
