According a report in the local press it's going to take 3 years to rebuild the Grands Montets cable car, mainly because the top station is located in a protected area so there are lots of environmental issues.

The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc has issued a press release on the replacement of the lifts destroyed by fire in 2018. They are planning to build a new cable car from the railway station at Argentière up to Lognan and a 3S lift from there to the Grands Montets.

The star architect Renzo Piano has been commissioned to design the lift stations.

A major stumbling block seems to have been getting the insurance companies to pay out. The two main insurers Generali (55%) and Allianz (30%) have now agreed, but the RSA Insurance Group (15%) is still refusing to pay the claim.

In Lognan, the intermediate station that burned down in 2018 would be replaced by two smaller ones. One would connect the summit with a detachable device capable of transporting easily 750 people per hour: the maximum threshold already authorized for the previous cable car, but which in practice did not exceed 400 people per hour. The capacity would thus be almost doubled, considerably reducing the queues to reach the summit.
Les Arcs est une station de ski spécialisée, composée d'un certain nombre de villages différents. Réputée pour être un domaine skiable familial, elle offre vraiment quelque chose pour tout le monde. Depuis 2003, Les Arcs sont reliés à La Plagne par la télécabine à deux étages Vanoise Express, qui traverse la vallée, créant ainsi le domaine skiable Paradiski et offrant aux skieurs aventureux un accès à 425 km de pistes
