Dear clients & partners,
In a previous release, we indicated our intention to continue to inform you of developments regarding the closure of the 2nd section of the Aiguille du Midi cable-cars as the expert reports & work progress.
Over the past few days a work group made up of our Aiguille du Midi technicians, the technical director of the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc & various sub-contractors (DCSA, Garaventa, Fatzer…) to make a full enquiry to determine the reasons for the defects detected on the tractor cabe of the 2nd Aiguille du Midi cable-car.
On going to press, this technical diagnosis, in close collaboration with the state certification authorities, is underway & we are already certain that the tractor cable must be changed.
As a result, we must inform you that access to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi is closed to the public throughout this autumn in order to permit all work necessary to change the cable. At the present moment with the elements of the diagnosis in our possession, the reopening is planned for December 2018.
The first cable-car between Chamonix & the Plan de l’Aiguille will remain open until further notice.
During this period, access to a viewpoint of the Mont-Blanc range is maintained by the opening of the Flégère cable-car in the village of Les Praz (2km from Chamonix town centre, in the direction of Argentière, Col des Montets, Switzerland).
Please be informed that the “MONT-BLANC Multipass” of 2 to 21 days will be accepted by the “Skyway” (Courmayeur, Italy) lift system until the complete re-opening of the Aiguille du Midi lift system.
This is in addition to the access granted to “MONT-BLANC Multipass” season passes & “MONT-BLANC Unlimited” annual passes as previously announced.
