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 1235 and 3300 metres. It is often the first lift in the area to open at the start of the winter season and is the last to close at the end, due to its high altitude and reliable snow cover.
The Grands Montets cable car has a second section that gives access to further pisted runs, as well as unlimited off-piste and the Argentiere glacier.
You can buy your ski passes directly from the office here. Also available at the lift pass office are piste maps, bus (& train where appropriate) 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 cable car is open in summer and winter.
