Week-end to Lognan - Ski touring trip

Week-end to Lognan - Ski touring trip
Physical Level 2  
Technical Level 2  
Category Ski Touring
Number of days : 2
Price : 355€

Access to the high alpine is made easy thanks to the Chamonix valley ski lifts. Lognan mountain hut is located close to the Lognan cable car and makes lots of easy ski touring routes easily to get to. Experience a true and welcoming mountain hut atmosphere and enjoy “Argentero” local dishes.

Lognan mountain hut is a quiet place with a huge potential!

Day 1: Snow and weather conditions permitting, we start from the top of the Grand Montets cable car (3300m/10 890ft), and enjoy a beautiful run down Glacier du Rognon to reach Argentière glacier (2550m/8400ft). From there our ski touring route choice is quite large and can be adapted to all levels and conditions. Later in the afternoon, we ski back down to Lognan mountain hut (2032m/6700ft) where we stay for the night.

Vertical gain: 300 to 500m (990 to 1 650ft) depending on skiers’ ability.
Vertical drop: 1 500m - 4 950ft

Day 2: We leave the hut and head towards Col du Passon (3 028m/ 9 990ft), the pass that divides Argentière basin from Le Tour glacier. From the pass we ski down glacier du Tour, and reach the eponymous village. A fabulous ski run!

Vertical gain: 1000m/ 3 300ft - Vertical drop: 1 400m/ 4 620ft
