Two altitudes with two environments: the Lognan pastures at 1 970 m and the Argentière glacier’s seracs at the 3 275 m summit. A whole universe to discover… From the Aiguille des Grands Montets: the view of the Mer de Glace, the Aiguille de Chamonix, the Mont-Blanc and the Chamonix valley. From the Point de Vue (1 hr00 walk from Lognan): the scenery of one of the most spectacular ice falls of the valley and the departure of mountaineers for the Aiguille Verte and the summits of the massif.

Dear customers and partners,
The lack of snow on the bottom portion of the Pierre à Ric, the heavy rainfall we have had over the past weeks and the varying temperatures have made this piste that allows skiers to ski down to Argentière particularly difficult to maintain.
The current temperatures don’t allow the snow cover to harden enough when it is groomed in the morning. Therefore, in order to maintain the opening of this track to the skiers during the day, our teams will ensure the grooming of the Pierre à Ric at the end of the day after the closure of the ski area.
We therefore inform all ski touring practitioners that the ascent of the Pierre a Ric will be prohibited between the closing time of the ski area and 9pm starting from Monday December 31st and until better snow conditions allow us to suspend this ban.
Thank you for your understanding. Happy skiing and visits on the domains of the Compagny du Mont Blanc group
