New Lift in Argentiere 2

After 28 years of noisy, oil dripping service the Plan Joran chairlift is no more. All summer long they have been installing a shiny new cable car that has 84 x 10 person cabins delivering 3200 people/hour from the car park to the ski slopes of Grands Montets. The mid station at Lognan (Grands Montets) is also having a full facelift.

A quick look earlier today at the progress looks promising, the top and bottom station are well on the way to being finished, all pylons are in and the cable is on. The new cabins were delivered earlier this week. The lift company have stated that it is on schedule and all will be ready for the beginning of winter.

This is the 1st part of the ½ Billion Euros investment program that the lift company signed up to last November as part of the lease contract to operate the lifts in Chamonix.
