    The biggist glacier in Mont Blanc Group is Glacier du Géant - Mer de Glace (name for the lower part of the Géant Glacier), a valley glacier. Another big valley glacier on the North Side of the Mont Blanc Area is Glacier d'Argentière. And there are slope glaciers on the North Side, Glacier des Bossons and Glacier de Taconnaz.

    On the South Side of Mont Blanc is the end of the Grand Glacier de Miage, a valley glacier that has a snout with two branches. On the East Side of Mont Blanc is the mountain slope Glacier de la Brenva, also Mont Maudit S Side glacier (thanks to om). On the South Side of Aiguille de Triolet is the Glacier de Triolet.
