The oratory of Our Lady of Snow at the bottom of the Aiguille was also built during the 19th century to ask for protection against avalanches.
This chapel is one of the last to be built in Manigod. La Charmette is located at 5 kilometers from the village of Manigod. At this time, the proximity of the baking oven and the chapel made life easier.

The bell is melted in 1869 with a diameter of 57cm. It is engraved with religious motifs, such as the Virgin Mary and the Crucifixion of the Christ.

The lateral facades are ornamented with four stained-glass windows. The front of the chapel has a ribbed door with an oculus and an inscription «Our Lady of Snow protect us».
All year round, daily.
