Starting from the arrival of the Flégère cable car, go down the "combe of la Chavanne". Near the old stables, follow the ski piste on the left which winds its way up the hill and passes close to an old chalet and the lac de la Flégère (2027). Take the path under the "Tete Aubuy", which flollows a ridge (small lake) and joins the footpath coming up from Argentière. The path now gradually becomes flatter, bringing you out at the Lac Blanc. +/- 1H45 one way
