In France for the over the weekend and looking to come to Chamonix this weekend (June 8th, 2018). I am aware of the Aiguille du Midi shutdown earlier this week and that most lifts open next weekend. I was hoping to hike from Mid-point of Aiguille du Midi to Montenvers (Grand balcon Nord, I believe). I have read reports in April that this winter was harsh.
I have checked https://www.chamoniarde.com/ , but don't know enough about the area to know all of the areas talked about and don't see that specific route mentioned. I am intermidiate hiker with hiking boots/backpack, but no other gear. would be open to renting more winter-ish gear if appropriate.
Any ideas or feedback on what would be available this weekend?
