Yesterday, Monday 23 October 2023, because of the annual maintenance on the Aiguille du Midi facility, the town hall of Chamonix announced the closure of walking trails up to the mid mountain and some high alpine mountaineering routes.
Annual maintenance on the Aiguille du Midi facility does not always require closures within the vicinity, but this year, the cable is being replaced. The closures are being implemented to provide the maintenance crews with unrestricted access and to protect the people from the outcome of any unforeseen event.
Needless to say, the Aiguille du Midi telepherique will be closed from 6 November until 15 December 2023.
CHAMONIX TO MID MOUNTAIN
Several trails are closed with immediate effect until 15 December 2023
The Plan de l'Aiguille trail via Grand Bois is closed.
The direct route to the Cascade du Dard and the route from the Grand Bois to the Cascade are both closed.
Access to the Pré du Rocher sector is closed. This is not the newly named and eponymous car park in the city centre.
