Autumn is here in Chamonix and the colours are changing, as well as the temperature! Its the time of year when everyone is talking about the weather. The Aiguille du Midi is open 8h10-15h30 everyday, so it’s a perfect time, with these clear blue sky days, to head up 3,842m to view the beautiful landscape!
